I am so very proud to serve the students and families of Heideman Elementary School.
I began here at the start of the 2014-15 school year. I brought with me 16 years of teaching experience in Long Beach Unified. I taught 4th and 5th grade for 16 years and spent 4 years as the Cotsen Mentor Teacher, after which I was an Assistant Principal in Orange Unified for 1 year. I earned my Master's Degree in Educational Administration
In my experience all students are eager to learn, and each child brings their unique gifts and talents to the experience of learning. So at Heideman we aim to bring out and nurture those unique gifts and talents. We want every child to be known, valued and supported for who they are. We also strive to build meaningful connections with our families and the wider community.
These 3 years at Heideman have been thrilling and enormously satisfying. We endeavor each and every day to engage our students in the adventure of learning through critical thinking, discussion, collaboration, and creativity: they are the pathways along which we guide our students.
