Ms. Heather Banks

My name is Heather Banks; I am a 6th grade Language Arts teacher for the Timber Wolves. This will be my 15th year working for LCPS!  I spent the first seven years at Farmwell Station MS.  I started my career as an Instructional Specialist and then taught 6th grade US History.  Seven years ago, I made the switch to Technology Resource Teacher and spent three years at Eagle Ridge MS followed by opening Trailside Middle School in 2014.  In August 2016, I returned to the classroom, where my heart has always been.  I love mixing all of my experiences to give my students the best learning environment possible.
 
Originally I am from New York State, where I attended Dutchess Community College and Mount Saint Mary College.  I received my Associate's degree in Elementary Education and my Bachelor's degree in English with a dual certification in Special Education and Elementary Education.  I finished my Master's program in Curriculum Instruction with a concentration in Integrating Technology into the Schools at George Mason University in 2008.  Learning is an opportunity I rarely turn down.
