Mrs. Heidi Edmondson
Welcome to the 22-23 school year! I'm excited to welcome back my First and Second grade students! I extend a special welcome to our newest learners, our Kindergarten friends!
Our classroom is an engaging, dynamic, language-rich classroom where every student is encouraged to showcase their best self. As a team, the Teacher Aides and I work hard to create a warm and loving environment so that every student can grow in a way that makes them feel safe and supported while also being challenged.
A bit about me:
-I am a Tucson Native and a U of A Graduate. GO CATS!
-I am teaching my fifth year in K-2 at Wilson K-8. This is my 10th year as an educator working with exceptional students!
-I have three AMAZING kids and a pretty great husband, too!
-I love to spend time with my family camping, enjoying movie nights or trying new recipes.
-I am a lifelong learner. I am constantly seeking new information, especially about teaching exceptional students.
We have a team of devoted teaching assistants who work alongside me every day to care for our children. They are the "cogs" that keep our clock ticking, and I appreciate them so much.
Defining Moment in Education
Teaching was a lifelong dream. I am so lucky that I get to do something I love for a living! I get great fulfillment out of the “little wins” a child earns over what may appear to others as a trivial accomplishment. These are the moments I teach for!
Core Educational Beliefs
Innovation- “Find a way, try a way, or make a way!”
Inclusion- Every person should feel welcome and a part of their community system, regardless of their differences.
