Welcome to Fourth Grade!

Hi!  My name is Heather Osborne.  I grew up in Hickory, NC, where I enjoyed spending time with my family, going on the lake, and babysitting.  I knew at a very young age that I wanted to work with children!  When I'm not teaching, I enjoy two-stepping & line dancing, going on the lake, and snow skiing. I also love spending time with my friends, family, and furbabies.  Unfortunately, I was not blessed with children of my own, so my furbabies are my world.  I have a three-year-old German Shepherd Dog named Bentley.  She is super smart, goes everywhere with me, and is super spoiled.  (I wouldn't have it any other way!)  Last year, I rescued 3 cats, Momma Maggie and her two kittens, Raven and Willow.  I wasn't really a cat person, but they quickly wormed their way into my heart...and my house!  It took some time and patience, but we are now one little happy family!  

In December 1998, I graduated from Appalachian State University and have been teaching ever since!  I taught kindergarten, second, third, and fourth grades, but fourth grade is definitely my favorite!  I moved to Harnett County in 2009 and became a 4th grade teacher at Benhaven Elementary.  I earned my AIG certification from Campbell University and serve as the AIG Lead for the school.  I have very high academic and behavioral expectations for my students.  My goal is for students to believe in themselves, develop good character traits, and become inquisitive, lifelong learners.  I want them to love school as much as I love teaching!  

Let's work together to make this school year the best one ever!  Please know that I will always have your child's best interest at heart, so if you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me through Gmail or the agenda.  I look forward to helping your child meet his/her potential during another fabulous school year!  Thank you in advance for your support and understanding!
