Discovery Staff



    Heidi Zimmerman
    Mrs. Zimmerman is delighted to be your art teacher here at Discovery Elementary. This is her 18th year of teaching art. For two years in New Hampshire she taught 7th-12th grade art before moving to Virginia with her husband. In 1999 she opened Cedar Lane Elementary and was the art teacher until 2008 when the arrival of her son took her life on a different path to being a stay-at-home mom for 5 years. It was always her plan to return to the teaching profession that she greatly loved once her son entered kindergarten, which he did the Fall of 2013.

    Mrs. Zimmerman obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education, studio specialty ceramics, from Penn State University. She is a member of the National Art Education Association and the Virginia Art Education Association.

    This is my third year at Discovery Elementary. I 
    am very excited to be teaching art at Discovery Elementary. I first started teaching 9-12 art in the 1990's in New York after receiving my Art Certification from Buffalo State University. I have been a substitute teacher while I have been raising y 3 daughters. It is a joy to return to teaching art  at the elementary level.


    I received Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Ithaca College in Ithaca NY. My Masters of Art in  Education was completed at the University Of  Illinois at Urbana Champaign. Drawing and  painting  is my speciality in art.
