Mrs. Heather Capen

I was born in Oklahoma. I moved to Springfield, Missouri when I was five years old and that is where I grew up. I attended Missouri State University, where I met my husband. The Army brought us to North Carolina. We have been married for 13 years and have two children: Meredith (5) and Maverick (3). I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy playing outside, going to the beach, playing games and watching movies together. 

Before coming to work at Highland Elementary, I was a stay at home mom working to homeschool Meredith and Maverick. Previously, I worked as a Substitute Teacher and Kindergarten Aide. Teaching is my passion and I enjoy my job very much! I am dedicated to making learning fun and helping students achieve their educational goals.
