Hello! My name is Mr. Erick Kurth. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. I attended Hidden Forest ES and graduated from Churchill HS in '94. I then attended Texas Tech University where I gained my bachelor's degree.
I was then given the opportunity to help run and operate private language instituites in Asia, so from 2002-2017 I lived and worked in Asia teaching English. I then spent 5 years in Thailand where I helped students get into prestigious universities. It is also where I met my wife. I then spent 10 years in South Korea as a public school teacher teaching K-12.
I have two daughters. My oldest daughter was born in Bangkok, Thailand and is now attending a magnet school at Lee. My youngest daughter was born in Busan, South Korea and is just starting Pre-K.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and 2 dogs. We are adventurous foodies who are willing to try just about anything. Our favorite foods are seafood, Thai food, anything spicy, and of course Tex-Mex!! I also enjoy listening to music (specifically Harry Styles- Fine Line).
This is going to be my first year teaching at Nimitz. I am beyond excited to get to meet and know all of you. Please don't hesistate to stop by and say hi, my door is always open. Whether you need help academically or you just want to talk about middle school in general.
