Miss Arika Elderkin - Resource Teacher
Hello! My name is Arika Elderkin and I am a First-year teacher here at STREAM. I was born and raised in Oroville. I am engaged and we have a 4 year old son and plan to eventually have more children. After graduating from Oroville High School, I went to Butte College where I earned my A.S. in Child Development, A.S. in Social and Behavioral Sciences, A.A. in Early Childhood Education, and A.A. in Liberal Studies to transfer to CSU Chico. I graduated from Chico State in the Spring of 2020 with my bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and a minor in Special Education and a minor in Child Development. After graduation I went into the Concurrent Credential program at Chico State, which means I earned both my multiple subjects teaching credential and my mild/moderate education specialist credential.
I completed my first practicum of student teaching, which was my General Education student teaching, here at STREAM! I had an amazing experience. I then began my first year of teaching here as well, as the Resource teacher. I fell in love with the staff and the environment here at STREAM and I am happy to be a part of the STREAM family officially.
I am looking forward to a great school year and getting to know the STREAM families!
