About the Teacher
Hello my name is Jeannie Heffley. I have been teaching for 21 years, grades k-5
I have been at Washington for 12 years and love it! I especially enjoy our STEAM focus which is just as engaging for me as it is students. I find it very important to balance out our today’s high tech skills with necessary social developmental experiences that will last a lifetime. The best part about teaching Kindergarten is that I have the opportunity to be able to start a student’s path out in learning with a sense of self-confidence, inquiry and risk taking.
I have a Bachelor's in Anthropology, Masters in Cross Cultural Education, Bilingual Teaching Credential, Administrative Credential, Reading Recovery Credential and Gate Certification. I am a William Fulbright Teacher Exchange recipient to Scarborough, England. I received Special Education award from San Diego Unified and have been honored to have been chosen Teacher of the Year twice.
I am a native of San Diego, the oldest of 6 kids! My hobbies are camping, traveling, and vintage trailers!
