Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Kathleen Erikson and I love teaching here at West Valley. I moved here from Dilworth Elementary, another Cupertino school. I have taught grades K through Third over the span of my career. Teaching is my passion and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I am married and my husband and I have two children, both now young adults. We have lived for over 20 years in Boulder Creek so I make the trek down from the mountains each day to teach. As a family we are active in the Swedish community of the Bay Area and spend a lot of our time in Sveadal (summer resort area), where our family has a cabin. I feel lucky to be able to teach at such a wonderful school with such a kind and caring community. Go Wildcats!f West Valley.
