About the Teacher

NAME: Erik Foit

SCHOOL: Washington Middle School

CLASS: 7th Grade Science


I grew up in Pullman, Washington and graduated from Pullman High School. I earned my B.S. 
in Cell & Molecular Biology from the University of Washington. I earned my M.A. in Teaching 
from the University of Puget Sound.

I began my career in education teaching at E.B. Walker High School in Puyallup. I taught a 
variety of classes in grades 9-12, including Physical Science, Biology, Anatomy/Physiology, 
and various math courses.

I left Puyallup to teach science and math to both online and on-site students at Olympia 
Regional Learning Academy. I started teaching at WMS in 2011. This is my 19th year in 
education. I very much enjoy working at WMS. The students are great, their parents are 
involved, and our staff is outstanding.

I have twin 9-year old sons who keep me EXTREMELY busy. My wife is a 
former elementary school teacher and homemaker. We have two cats and a dog. I enjoy the 
outdoors, travel, music, projects, and spending time with my family and friends.
