Each Monday we will feature a local citizen who dedicates themselves in the education field within Mohave County. Whether they are teachers, bus drivers, crossing guards or lunch room attendants, The Bee will feature them in our special weekly section.
This week’s “Educator of the Week” is Heidi Heaton, a Pre-K teacher at Coyote Canyon Elementary School. Heaton works with students ages 3 to 5 who have disabilities.
Heaton was nominated by Desi Collea, who had this to say about her nominee:
“She is one of the most amazing teachers who we were lucky enough to have teach our son. We have four children ages from one to 16-years-old so we have had our fair share of teachers. The amount of patience and kindness she gives these children everyday makes us wish she could teach all of our kids. She has an enormous amount of sunshine that one could only hope to see in more teachers. ”
To nominate someone in this field, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org their name, what area in the education field they work, school or college name, contact number (if possible), photo and a short bio on the individual.
