Mrs. Heidi Iozzo
Hello Arcola Dragons! My name is Heidi Iozzo and I am so excited to officially join the Arcola Dragon staff as the 4/5 gifted resource teacher! After receiving my masters 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 a wonderful experience substituting in their gifted program, I decided to pursue my gifted endorsement. I feel so lucky that I will get to continue working in Arcola’s gifted program!
When I am not ROAR-ing with students I am busy doing family things with my husband, our 12-year old son, and our 10-year old daughter. These days there is less errand running and soccer playing and more family movie nights and bike rides. I love reading, being in natural places like on a farm or at the beach, all things science-fiction and fantasy, watching hockey (go CAPS!), and kindness.
I am so excited to begin exploring curriculum with more depth and complexity with Arcola students!
