Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Eric Trauthwein

   I am about to begin my 15th year teaching in Wylie ISD and my 14th year at Watkins Elementary. This school year I will be teaching RLA and Social Studies to two classes, and it will be my second in 4th grade!
   I received my teaching certification through LeTourneau University. I have both my 8-12 ELAR and EC-6 Generalist certifications.
   Personally, I live in Sachse with my wife, Amanda, and our two boys, Braylon (14), an 8th grader at Cooper, and Colby (11), a 6th grader at Draper. In my spare time I enjoy working out, reading, movies, and basically anything to do with my family, which most days consists of some type of sports for the boys! We're also Disney and Universal fanatics, so we try to vacation there as much as possible. 
   I believe that my classroom is an extension of my own family, and I strive to teach, discipline, and challenge your children as if they were my own.
