• Meet Mrs. Heitman
    Hi, there! I am Mrs. Heitman, and I have been a teacher at Jefferson Elementary School for thirteen years.  I am a 2nd grade part-time reading teacher.  I teach reading groups from all of the 2nd grade classes.  This is a new position fro me and I am very excited about working with Jefferson's 2nd graders and just teaching reading...it's my favorite.:)  
    I grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, and moved to North Caroilna to attend college at Western Carolina University.  At Western, I had a double major in elementary and special education.  I moved to Winston-Salem after graduating from college and began teaching at Jefferson.  After a few years of teaching, I began graduate school at Salem College.  In 2007, I earned my masters in education in language and literacy.   
    My family includes my husband, Mr. Heitman, and our two-year-old daughter, Leah.  We have a dog named Snoopy and cat named Sophie.  I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, cooking, and of course...READING!
