Mrs. Heflebower is super excited to be back teaching second grade for the 2022-2023 school year at Emerick Elementary. She received a Regent’s Bachelor of Arts degree from Shepherd University and earned her Virginia Teaching license and Master’s of Science in Elementary Education from Shenandoah University. This will be Mrs. Heflebower’s tenth year at Emerick. She is looking forward to working with second grade again this year.
Her motivation as an educator is to make a difference in the lives of children, to show students that education is continuous throughout life, to provide a positive influence where some children have none, to help students develop social skills, independent thinking, and individual character traits, and to gain satisfaction that she is doing something worthwhile in her life.
Mrs. Heflebower and her husband reside on a family farm in West Virginia, with their three children. In her spare time she enjoys puzzles, board games, cooking, crafting, photography, organizing and gardening. Mrs. Heflebower is proud to be a part of the Emerick family!
