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!

I have had the pleasure of working with Heather as a part of the 5th grade math team this year, and I can tell you, with no uncertainty, that she is wicked smart and totally committed to our kids.

Heather's sense of humor has been an awesome help this year as we plow ahead to the dreaded TEST. Please ask her if the floor squeaks in Ms. Symon's room, and no, I am not angry that she came into the world in the same year that I graduated high school :-}

Peace,

Wow, Heather! You and I have quite a lot in common. I graduated from Terry Parker, one of your biggest rivals. There, I also was involved in several areas of athletics as you were when you attended Fletcher. I am a member of BUMC with my family and am currently trying to get my youngest in there for pre-school. :-)

I too love Rottweilers. Until recently, I raised two, one boy and one girl, for a wonderful period of about 15 years. They are the BEST and most loving dogs!

Even better, you are currently working in one of my favorite places to teach- 5th grade MATH! It is the ultimate experience.

Welcome, Heather! I look forward to working with you and getting to know you better!

Ms. Happ and Ms. Johnson said...

Hi! Both my boys went to BUMC ELC program! Great place! Love getting to know you.

OK, I must have written something questionable, as dayle did not publish my first comment.

In short, Heather ROCKS the house in 5th grade math, and second grade can get in line! She is so intelligent and totally committed to the kids. Sorry Melissa...

Peace,
