Mrs. Heidi Iozzo
Hello Arcola Dragons! My name is Heidi Iozzo and the 2023-2024 school year will be my fourth year as the 4/5 gifted resource teacher. After receiving my master's degree in 4th – 8th grade Curriculum and Instruction, I began my teaching career as a middle school teacher. I taught one year of 7th grade math, five years of 7th grade science, and four years of 8th grade science before deciding to stay home with my children. I loved teaching science and always thought I would return to middle school, but Arcola’s amazing climate and culture changed my mind. After spending some time working with gifted students, I decided to pursue my gifted endorsement and return to teaching full time. I feel so lucky I get to continue providing enriching learning opportunities as an Arcola Dragon!
When I am not ROAR-ing with students, I am busy doing family things with my husband and my two children who are former Arcola Dragons. I love reading, exploring natural places (I love farms and beaches!), all things science-fiction and fantasy, watching hockey (go CAPS!), and kindness.
