About Our Teachers

Ms. Breetzke

Hello! I'm Erin Breetzke. Prior to teaching, I've worked for a couple SWCDs, the USDA, and a private engineering firm. I began my teaching career at Goshen Community Schools in Goshen, Indiana, then moved out this way a few years ago. I began teaching at WHS in the fall of 2017.

With a passion for ecology, environmental science and environmental law, I earned my BS in environmental science (minor in secondary education) from Joseph's College (Rensselaer, IN) and my Master of Environmental Science from the University of Oklahoma.

Outside of work, I cheer on the Sooners (Boomer! Sooner!), Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears. I enjoy swimming, quilting and reading. The last few summers I've been trying to develop more of a green thumb. I love to travel, even if it's just a small road trip. I have my PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification, and enjoy traveling anywhere I can use it (especially the Caribbean).

I just got married in June 2016 to an amazing man from South Sudan who was an EL student himself! I love traveling and exploring different cultures. I love being an EL teacher because I learn so much from my students’ different backgrounds and experiences that they have had. I really think my students teach me more than I teach them sometimes!
