Mrs. Heider

I was born and raisied in southern Wisconsin, but I have lived in the Elgin area for over 30 years.  My husband and I have 3 grown children that are graduates of Larkin High School.  Sherry, the oldest lives in Fitchburg, Wisconsin with her family.  The middle child, Cassandra,  lives in Burbank, California with her husband.  My youngest, Colin, still lives at home while working, as a tech, for a company in Elgin.

We have one dog, Colby, which is an Austrailian Sheppard, but acts like our 4th child.  

I worked numerous years for Pizza Hut as a manager and a training manager.  Tyring of the politics in the business world, I decided to embark on a second career.  I still worked part-time at nights, shuttled children around and returned to school to become a teacher.

In my second career, as a math teacher, I try to instill in students that they have great "MINDS."  Trying to solve problems, learning from their mistakes, and improving their decision making skills are my top priorities.  If they can improve on those personal aspects of their life, they will grow in math and any other endevour they pursue in life.
