Erin Hudson

Erin always knew she wanted to be a teacher. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Psychology, she earned a Master’s in Special Education from Lehigh University and worked at Lehigh University’s Centennial School. While there she served students having specific learning disabilities, autism, emotional disturbance, and speech and language impairments. Concurrently, she received intensive training in positive behavior support, research-based instruction, and data based decision-making. Erin continued her passion to serve students with social, emotional, and learning challenges at the Reece School in Spanish Harlem. There she served as a special education teacher in a self-contained classroom.

Erin joined the Haven team in 2011. She taught fourth and first grade and served as the Director of Intervention Services. She worked closely with the leadership team to develop Haven’s positive behavior support system in a trauma-sensitive environment. Erin earned the role of Assistant Principal in 2017.

Erin holds certification in General and Special Education (Birth – Grade 6), as well as School Building Leadership.
