Welcome Letter

Dear Third Grade Families,

      I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Heffernan, and I am starting my first year of teaching. I graduated from Iowa State University in December of 2013. I am a HUGE Cyclone fan, but we can still be friends if you like the Hawkeyes. (My husband is a Hawkeye…unfortunately.) We just got married in May and we reside in Urbandale. I completed student teaching throughout the Fall of 2013 in two Des Moines public elementary schools. This past Spring, I worked as a substitute teacher with the Johnston, Urbandale, and Des Moines schools. I am really looking forward to this school year. I grew up in Audubon, so I am very comfortable with small to moderately sized school districts. I remember that third grade was my most enjoyable year as a young student, and I am hoping to provide the same experience for your child. This Fall I will be the assistant coach for our Panther cross country team, and then in the Spring I will be coaching the junior high track team. I enjoy playing sports and being active in my free time. If you have any questions or would like to say hi, I’m always available!
