“I love working in the field of early childhood education because i am amazed by the difference how every single child learns and developments. My mission is to support and encourage children's learning. When I am not at KinderHouse LA I love playing with my son, and exercising.”

Erika Pope - Assistant Teacher
My name is Erika. I am 31 years old and I always knew I was meant to work with children. I received an Associates degree in Liberal Arts from Santa Monica College and have taken 12 units in Early Childhood Education.

I worked for four years as a teachers assistant for the Los Angeles Unified School District in an elementary school setting. I also worked as a tutor for elementary school aged children. I enjoy working at KInderhouseLA a great deal and love watching the children grow.
