Hello and welcome!
My name is Heather and I am the Director of Education for an early childhood preschool and momma to two kiddos. Teaching is my passion, and although I have a degree in Music Education, I found my real place in life is working with the tiny humans from 6 weeks up to 6 years old. I was a lead Pre-Kindergarten teacher for 6 years before starting my role in administration as Director of Education. I now oversee a school with 120 students! This unique position allows me to have direct oversight of curriculum, teacher professional development, day-to-day operations, and gives me the opportunity to build strong relationships with members of our community.
I am also a dedicated momma! Emma and Lee are 4 and 1 and the center of my universe! Emma is a spunky girly who constantly breaks gender stereotypes with her love of dragons, hockey, and dressing up as a knight! Little Lee is finding his own personality, and I’m sure will be the center of my many parenting struggles for the future! With my husband, Matt, we work hard to implement strong family values and the latest in early childhood research in our home lives.
I am hoping to share my journeys as both an educator and a momma. These situations may include life at home and parenting ideas, lesson planning ideas, team building and teacher management, latest practices in early childhood, and the roller coaster ride of operating a preschool.

Wishing you well,
