Get to Know Heather Wickert

Heather Wickert was born in Charleston, South Carolina on Feb. 20, 1981. She has two sisters, Erin (12) and Stephanie (26). She moved to Jacksonville in 1994 and enrolled in Fletcher High School. She was involved in sports year round. Heather then attended the University of South Carolina for two years, graduating from UNF with a degree in Communications with a specialty track in Public Relations. Heather has worked in the pre-school at Beach United Methodist Church since her senior year in high school. She began substitute teaching in January of 2007 and that's when she knew she wanted to teach. Heather secured a long-term position at Chets Creek and that's how she decided that Chets was the place for her!

Heather loves spending time with her family, friends, boyfriend and especially her dogs! She has a Rottweiler and a Jack Russell and they are spoiled rotten! During the summer she lives on the beach and loves traveling!

Heather works in 5th Grade Math with Katie Symons. Heather says that Katie has helped me tremendously with her first year teaching. Heather loves coming to work everyday and says she is so excited to learn from and work with such a wonderful faculty and fabulous group of students! Welcome Heather Wickert! We are so glad you have come to call Chets Creek home!
