My name is Heather. I’m a certified elementary and special education teacher in the state of South Dakota. I am also certified to be a K-12 Reading Specialist or Principal.
My classroom experience has ranged from preK-6th grade. I’ve taught everything from a regular gen ed classroom to inclusion special education to Reading Recovery to a multi-grade classroom of ELL students.
All of these varied experiences have given me a chance to really see that teaching is all about “fun, engaged, impactful relationships & learning”. (This has also become my blogging mantra!) Treat students with respect and they will do almost anything for you! Once you’ve built the relationships, the learning will come.
After seven years in the classroom I become a K-6 principal at two schools and K-12 district special education director. I’m now home caring for our two children and working online. I miss the students and staff, but I love still having my hands in education through my online endeavors.
If you have any questions about me, my resources, or my blog – please reach out! I love connecting with other educators from around the world!
