Mrs. Heather Temple
Welcome to first grade! I am so excited and grateful to be spending this year with your child. I believe that each child is unique and in order to reach their full potential, they must have a caring and stimulating atmosphere. The classroom environment must include respect, honesty, pride, and open communication which allows the students to feel comfortable, safe, and respected. It is my desire to create and maintain an environment that is conducive to learning- a place where a community of learners celebrates the joy of their learning and achievement. A safe learning environment is essential for children to take risks and construct meaning in learning. Through a partnership between home and school, your child will increase their educational experience and have a wonderful year.
I have been teaching since 2001, but I have been a part of the Prairie Winds family since 2014. I am married and a mother of two amazing boys and one sweet girl who keep me busy and smiling on a daily basis. I graduated from Lewis-Palmer High School several years ago, and my family and I reside in Monument. I am thrilled to be a part of Prairie Winds.
