Erika Larrabee

Erika Larrabee is a secondary physical education and health teacher at Maine Connections Academy (MCA). She holds dual bachelor’s degrees in athletic training and health and physical education from Marywood University, as well as a minor in coaching. Ms. Larrabee joined Connections Academy in 2015. She shares more of her story below.

“Growing up, I was always interested in fitness and the medical field. Becoming a teacher has always felt like the natural thing to do. After graduating from Marywood University, I went to work in New York City at a physical therapy clinic for four years. There, I worked as a certified athletic trainer with patients who had just undergone surgeries and those with overuse injuries. I also worked with a few local high schools and college sports teams during game. While working at the physical therapy clinic, I got to make some great connections with people and help them return to their favorite activities. I learned a great deal about the rehabilitation process, but I knew I needed to find a teaching position to be truly happy.

I teach five courses at MCA, including Health and Physical Education, Personal Fitness, Health Fitness, and Nutrition for grades seven through twelve. I enjoy the virtual setting because I am able to sit down and have real conversations with students. I am also able to personalize the health and physical education course for them and really focus on their goals. I hope to make the life of each student a little bit healthier.”
