AS Elementary Education
John A. Logan College, Carterville, IL
Heather has always had an interest in teaching. One could say that her teaching career started in high school, where she taught Kiddie City her junior and senior years. Her love for teaching children only grew from there. She went on to get her AS in Science for Elementary Education. Heather then started teaching at the Creative Schools in North Carolina, where her husband was stationed while serving in the United States Army. She later became a nanny to three children. She was able to build personal relationships with all three children. She enjoyed watching them learn and grow. At both of these jobs, Heather was blessed to meet wonderful people and share the love of God with them. After having her oldest child, she and her husband decided she would be a stay-at-home mother. After living In North Carolina for 3 years, Heather and her family returned to Marion, IL, their hometown.
Even though staying home, teaching and taking care of her two children was all she has ever wanted, Heather feels God has now called her to teach at Ambleside School of Marion. This will be Heather's second year teaching Pre-K at Ambleside. She has enjoyed her first year very much, learning new things everyday, right along with her students. She is very excited to interact with some of her previous students along with new students. Heather is praying for another great year here at Ambleside! She believes that God is doing a mighty work at this school and that it's only the beginning!
