Ms. Erin Ormsby

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by my class page to get to know me a bit better. My name is Erin Ormsby (though many call me "Ms. O"). This year, I have the pleasure of teaching English 10, 11, and Theatre Arts. Before joining the Ardsley family, I taught English in the Bronx for four years. In the past, I worked as a teacher/ curriculum writer at a nonprofit that specializes in helping teens learn healthy relationship skills, and even taught in Thailand for two years.

I am originally from Massachusetts, but have been living in the Bronx with my fiancé and cat for the past five years. I earned my undergrad at Siena College and my graduate degree at the University at Buffalo. When I'm not teaching, you can usually find me with a book in one hand and a coffee in the other (I buy books faster than I can read them). I'm looking forward to a great year ahead!

Feel free to contact me any time at
