Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Erica Van Schaik

Hi, and welcome! As a graduate of Petal High School, I'm happy to be a part of Petal's educational community.  After high school, I attained both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from USM in English and English literature. I believe a solid English education creates a foundation in all academic areas and, more importantly, in communication itself. I'm excited to teach a subject that is very important to me in a place that's very important to me!
