Erik J. Straube

Welcome to Northwood Elementary! I have lived in San Antonio my entire life. I am a graduate of St. Mary's University where I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Music. This will be my 5th year at Northwood. I will also begin my 18th year teaching in North East, 8 years in First Grade and 10 years in kindergarten. I enjoy outdoor activities and consider myself a self-taught chef. I also love singing "old school" country music, in public, and playing classical guitar. Over the summer, I celebrated my 9th wedding anniversary with my wonderful, beautiful wife and enjoy being a stepparent to our 6 amazing children.
