My name is Heather and I live in Denver, Colorado. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio and moved to Denver approximately thirteen years ago. When I first moved to Denver, I obtained a job in the marketing department of a small family owned business that manufactures waterproofing membranes for the construction industry. As Marketing Coordinator, I gained five years’ experience with this company before I decided to go back to school for my Masters in Education. Currently, I am a high school science teacher in an alternative high school in the Denver Metro area, for the eighth year.
My educational background is extensive and diverse. I received my undergraduate degrees from The Ohio State University. During my four years as an undergraduate, I obtained two degrees, a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I received my Masters of Elementary Education through the University of Phoenix. In the state of Colorado, I am endorsed to teach Elementary Education, Secondary Science, Secondary Math, and Secondary Social Studies. I am also currently working on an endorsement in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse through a Masters program at Colorado University-Boulder. Lastly, my doctorate journey should be over in a few months ending with a Doctorate in Educational Leadership with a Specialization in Educational Technology from the University of Phoenix.
On a more personal note, I am a proud mother to a beautiful (and smarty pants) baby girl, Katelyn Josephine, who turned 2 Christmas Eve. I love to read and watch sci-fi/fantasy. My favorite quote is from Christa McAuliffe, “I touch the future. I teach.”
