About Heidi


Bio

Hi there,

My favorite experiences have been teaching reading as well as watching my own children learn to read. I enjoy the "ah-ha" moments children have as they discover things in the world around them and make connections. I love when children ask questions and I can guide them to the answers. Like I said, teaching is my passion, and I look forward to...

Hi there,

Teaching is my passion. I have taught in public education for 13 years. I've taught grades k-5. I've always enjoyed working with kids. My favorite experiences have been teaching reading as well as watching my own children learn to read. I enjoy the "ah-ha" moments children have as they discover things in the world around them and make connections. I love when children ask questions and I can guide them to the answers. Like I said, teaching is my passion, and I look forward to having the opportunity to make a difference one child at a time.
