Heather Fischer was nominated by her colleague, Mandi Wofford.
Ms. Fischer works tirelessly to capitalize on the limitless potential of her fourth-grade students. She fosters an atmosphere of open inquiry and discussion for her students. Ms. Fischer's laughter is infectious, and her students not only have fun, but they master content that might seem daunting at first. Her calm, yet bubbly approach to classroom management allows students to participate in an environment that feels safe, relevant, and purposeful. Ms. Fischer leads the science department with the same fever she has for her own classes.
"Under her leadership, the science team has flourished and become a leading example in team planning and differentiation to the rest of the campus," Wofford said. "She is an asset to all 750+ people on our campus, and we are super glad to have her here."
