Dear Parents and Students,
I am so excited to be teaching you this year! My name is Heather Webb and I grew up in Southeast Ohio. I attended Wittenberg University where I attained a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Last year I moved to North Carolina and taught Special Education Language Arts to 3rd and 5th grader. This year I will be teaching Special Education at two schools: Gordon Barbour Elementary and Locust Grove Primary School.
I have done a lot of field work in schools over the years. I began volunteering in high school at the local elementary schools. In college, I worked in almost every grade. In 2008, I had the unique experience to study abroad in Denmark for a semester. I worked in a Danish school and was able to observe their teaching practices. Throughout the years of working in the schools I feel that I have developed many strategies to help students flourish. I am really looking forward to working with you and your student over the next year!
