1st Grade Teacher


My name is Erin Fleharty (flea-har-tea) and I am so lucky to be a Pirate with you! I started my teaching career in August of 2020 and I joined the Platte County family in August of 2022! My teaching experience has included being a fifth-grade ELA and Social Studies teacher, a fifth-grade Math and Science teacher, and a first-grade teacher! I am looking forward to this year as it will bring many exciting learning opportunities for first graders!

For my undergraduate experience, I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Northwest Missouri State University in May of 2021.  During my time at Northwest Missouri State University, I worked towards my Language Arts Concentration and Iowa Reading Endorsement as well. I also challenged myself to get my Master of Science Education in Reading. I decided to go back to Northwest Missouri State University for my graduate experience, and I received my degree in August of 2023.

Being originally from a small town in Southwest Iowa, I am excited to start my new journey here in Kansas City, Missouri.  This is a new lifestyle for me, as I was born and raised on a farm. On our farm, we produced soybeans and corn. We also ran a cow/calf operation. During my free time, I love to hang out with my friends and family! I enjoy spending time on the water, outdoors, and going on road trips! I am a huge Kansas City Royals fan and an even bigger Kansas City Chiefs fan. Go Chiefs!  Just for you to get to know me a little better, here are two fun facts about me:

1. I was awarded as one of Missouri's Outstanding Beginning Teachers in 2021!


2. My family’s farm is located in the middle of a wind farm and the energy the wind turbines produce is transferred to California!


Go, Pirates!
