In 1986, Heather graduated from the University of Washington with a K-8 Elementary Education and 4-12 Mathematics degree.  Since that time, Heather has been educating children in many different ways.  She has taught in the public school, homeschooled 4 of her children, taught at a parent partnership program, parented over 20 foster children, taught at an after school Christian program, and now for the last 3 years she has taught math and science at ZLO.

Heather loves teaching at ZLO.  The small class sizes enable her to get to know the individual child, their learning needs/how they best learn. The small class sizes also allow for a lot of discussion, encouraging the students to learn from each other’s questions. Heather enjoys seeing the students ask questions, enjoy learning, and building their confidence.
