Mrs. Heather Grace
Hello! My name is Heather Grace, and I am the 1st Grade Teacher's Aide! Students come to my classroom from 1st and 2nd grade for a heavy focus on phonics, grammar, handwriting, and reading comprehension. This is my third year in education, but only my second year at Starkey! I moved from the Houston area in August of 2017 with my husband, who is a Special Education Math teacher at Fredericksburg Elementary. I have loved the Kerrville area since I was a little girl going on family camping trips at Mo Ranch, and I am so excited that I am finally able to live and work here like I always dreamed!
When I'm not at work, I love to spend time at the river with my husband. We also take a lot of roadtrips back to Houston to visit friends. Fortunately, my family moved here shortly before I did, and we all love to spend time together bird watching on my parent's property in Harper.
I don't have any children, but I treat every student that I come across as if they were my own! In my classroom we learn all about phonics and reading, but we also spend a lot of time talking about manners and morals, because I find that those things are just as important! I'm looking forward to another awesome year as a Starkey Scorpion!
