Mrs. Hefner

This will be my first year teaching Kindergarten. I taught Pre K for 2 years in NY, taught 1st grade for one year and I was a 1st grade TA for one year here at OES. I have a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education and I am currently finishing up the Residency Licensure program at ECU to get my Elementary Education Licensure. 

I have worked with children since I was in high school and always wanted to be a teacher, it just took me a while to get here. :) 

I am a military spouse, however, my husband and I are both from NC. I was born and raised in Granite Falls, NC and plan to return there once my husband retires from the military. We have two children, an 18 year old daughter that attends Lenoir Rhyne University and a 7 year old son that attends OES. As a family, we enjoy spending time together and camping.

I am excited about spending the year with my new class and watching them grow as we experience new adventures together. This is going to be an amazing year!!  

OES is the BEST!!
