Life-Changing Teaching Award Nominee
Whittier Elementary School
STUDENT RECOGNITION STORY
Ms. Heller is awesome. I appreciate how she makes a routine of calling families to check in, both to let us know how our kids are doing in class and find out how they are doing at home. When Owen had anxiety about going back to school after an extended quarantine and winter break, he also knew that Ms. Heller would ease them back into the school rhythm. They have such a trusting and playful relationship that really sticks with him in a way I’ve never heard him talk about a teacher before.
