Mrs. Heather Pochatek

My name is Heather Pochatek, and this will be the start of my twelfth year teaching art at Lewis-Palmer Middle School. I have been teaching for 24 years, 19 at the middle school level! I received my undergraduate degree in Art Education from Cleveland State University in Ohio and my Masters in Art Education from Fitchburg State College in Massachusetts. I enjoy teaching Middle-Level Students! They have great enthusiasm and are not afraid to take risks! My goal is not to make artists of my students but to teach my students to think like artists. In addition to teaching art, I also coach the 7th-grade volleyball team, help facilitate with WEB and run an afterschool art club.

When I am not teaching and coaching you can find me painting, crafting, fly fishing or mountain biking with my husband, Brian.

You can contact me by e-mail.
