Erick Street - P.E. Teacher
Erick grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and learned to love and appreciate sports at an early age. Basketball and baseball were his real passions, but he enjoyed playing other sports including hockey, tennis and soccer. The coaches he had were his mentors, and they inspired him to learn and succeed, and he carries their spirit with him in his own philosophy of teaching life lessons to youth through athletics.

In addition to teaching, Erick has coached a variety of sports teams, from 4th grade volleyball to varsity basketball. Erick is fluent in French and throughout his life has spent time in France with his father. He has two beautiful daughters, Lily and Clara, who bring new meaning to his life.
