I’m Heidi. I am a teacher in the Infant 1 room. After high school, I went to college to pursue a career in the health field. I became certified as both a pharmacy technician and an EKG technician. While neither of those occupations panned out, I had been working in another childcare center the entire time while taking those classes. I continued my childcare career, and I have now been working with children in a licensed childcare setting for 10 years. I love watching children as they grow. It’s amazing to see how much they can change and learn in their short time in the room.

“My favorite thing about teaching is sharing my love and passions with others. From infants to grandparents, there is always something to share. Seeing others get excited by their accomplishments and sharing an activity is the best part of teaching for me.”
