Mr. Eric Emerson
Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies!
I am excited to be beginning my 5th year here at Gregg Middle School. History has always been a passion of mine and I am excited for the opportunity to pass this onto the students at Gregg.
I am originally from Groveport, Ohio, (GO BUCKS!) a small suburb of Columbus. After graduating, I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. I spent time at Parris Island, SC, Camp Geiger, NC, Camp Pendleton, CA, and Twenty-Nine Palms, CA. In 2007 and 2009 I participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was Honorably Discharged in July of 2010 at the rank of Corporal.
I attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. I majored in Social Studies with a minor in History as well as earning my teaching certificate. I made the journey to the Charleston area in 2014. I am married to Sarah Emerson, a Spanish teacher at ARHS. We recently had our first child, Hudson, and also have 2 dogs and a cat.
