About Me

Hi! My name is Heather and I am a 30 something work at home mom to a 3 year old and married to an amazing husband and father. I also own a small photography business along with another small business working with people and their Estates. People will hire me to sell items they don’t need or want to take when their estate closes.

I am currently taking courses to complete my Masters Degree in Education. When I graduated high school I knew I wanted to be some how involved in the education field and I started taking classes at my local community college. My drive to finish my degree stems from my daughter. Since she was born I knew that I wanted to do everything in my power to make a great life for her. I also want to be able to make a very big difference in the life of children. Weather it be younger or older children I end up working with, I want to make sure that I can do whatever I can to help them.

I enrolled at Post University’s M.Ed. program because as a working mom and wife it is important for me to do what I can for my family. Furthering my career options is a great way to do this. This program will help me reach my career goals where I want to work in the educational field and make a difference. When I first started my college journey I wanted to work with kindergarten or first grade classes. As my educational journey progresses I see myself working with older students or adults in more of a online class professor or a work place trainer.

This journey will not be easy but I will work hard and give my all to reach my goals.

One thought on “About Me

  1. Hi Heather,
    I so agree with you when it comes to the BYOD policy. I use it very effectively in my classroom but I also have to be super organized and have a strong lesson or else the kids are getting side tracked. At times, if the distraction factor is too high, I set the timer on the board and the students have to have completed this many task in a certain amount of time.
    You are so right when you say that technology will become more and more relevant in the classroom. However, here is what I found out the other day when I asked my students how many of them used online textbooks and they told me that French was there only subject that used a textbook that had an online feature. This makes sense of course because school districts only have a certain amount of money allotted for new textbooks each year. In general, a district might make their departments hold on to a their textbook for 10, 15 or even 20 years. Overall, that mentality will have to change as well because we are evolving so quickly in many fields that the information provided will have changed so drastically that it might make us feel like we are set back in the stone age when we read about certain information so outdated since the back dates back 10 or 20 years. Hard to imagine but then again also easy to imagine as well!
