VVSD Teacher Spotlight- Eric Frederick, 4th Grade Teacher, Irene King Elementary

VVSD Teacher Spotlight- Eric Frederick, 4th Grade Teacher, Irene King Elementary School

Eric Frederick 

In recognition of all those we honor for serving our country on Veterans’ Day, we present a profile of one of our many VVSD staff members who have military service on their life’s resume.

Eric Frederick has travelled quite a route to end up right back where he started.  As a student, he attended Irene King Elementary School, A.Vito Martinez Middle School and then graduated from Romeoville HS in 2009.  Eric then served in the United States Army and saw infantry duty in Afghanistan.  He returned home, graduated from Illinois State University, and he began his teaching career.

Eric is a 4th grade teacher at Irene King and his classroom as a teacher this year, is the very same classroom he sat in as an Irene King student 20 years ago.
