About Me

Hello! My name is Heather Wagner. I am so excited your child and I will be working together this year! I am also looking forward to working alongside you to help your child have a successful school year. Second grade is such an exciting time for students. It will be an amazing year to watch our teammates expand their reading, math and social skills. Communication is key in your child's success so please reach out whenever. 


Our classroom is sports themed to promote teamwork, perserverance and encouragment. It is a warm and welcoming environment where all are welcome. I am committed to creating a positive learning environment where your child is loved, valued and an integral part of our classroom team! 


Happy 2021-2022 school year!
