My name is Chad Eirich and I am currently in my 11th year as a H&P.E. teacher at River Bend Middle School and in my 15th year as a H&P.E. teacher (I taught for 4 years in Chesterfield County, Virginia). I graduated from East Carolina University in 2005 with a Bachelor's degree in Health & Physical Education.
As an educator, I am fully committed to helping students get the most out of their physical potential through a variety of sports, games, lifetime activities, and fitness activities. I believe that success in the academic domain is strongly linked to a healthy and active body. I enjoy working with middle school students and helping them foster better social skills through positive interactions with their peers.
Outside of school, I am married to my wife, Anna, who is a practicing Family Physician in Winchester, VA and have 2 daughters - Eloise (7), Gabriella (5), and 1 son - Spencer (2). In my spare time I enjoy traveling, hiking and camping, playing in adult sport leagues, and playing with my dog, Gretta.
