Erin Placey, Director of Middle and High School Programs

If Erin could be any animal, she’d be a hummingbird, because “sunshine brings me to life!” Her best place in Holyoke is Mount Tom: you’ll find her there hiking, maybe listening to her favorite podcasts, Democracy Now! and On Being. And if her number came up in the lottery? “I’d definitely pay off my student loans—then take an adventure overseas!” Oh, and if she could be anything for a day, she’d be “a spoiled dog.” Erin feels best “when the work I’m doing feels like building community.” And the historical event she’d most like to witness? “The big bang! Because I mean, really, what else is there?”
