Parents and Students,
Welcome to Fourth Grade for the 2020-2021 school year!
My name is Jenny Heckathorn, proud mom of two wonderful kids Gehrig and Sofia, coach's wife, and dog lover. As I usher in my 19th year of teaching I am so excited to work with each student and their families. My teaching experience ranges in grade levels and even differing roles. I have taught younger grades and older grade levels, as well as a Math Specialist and Math Coach. As well, I have my ESL certification and considerable training in Gifted and Talented programs.
Goals for our classroom include empowering students to become classroom leaders, problem solvers, and decision makers. We will foster a growth mindset by
celebrating student growth, effort, and diligence.
I am so honored to be a part of your child's learning experience in Fourth Grade!
