Brian Erksa

I started working in education in 2018 as an educational assistant with Multnomah ESD in a school for children with multiple disabilities. The job was incredibly rewarding, so I decided to enter PSU’s graduate special education teacher licensure program a couple of years later and completed it in June, 2022. I’m excited to join the community at Woodmere for my first year of teaching!

I was born and raised in Virginia and received a BA in English from UVA in 2002. After finishing college, I spent time living in the Virgin Islands, Colorado, and Puerto Rico before settling in Portland. I am a single father of two teenage daughters, and I love being a parent. When I’m not parenting I enjoy running, exercising, reading, hiking, and spending time with friends.
