Teachers - Jr LA, Jr Genius Hour
Colleen Heffernan, B.G.S., B.Ed., M.Ed.
Work as a professional writer for young people inspired me to return to school as a mature student and take Secondary Education. I am now in my eleventh year of teaching in Aspen View Schools: three years in Smith, seven at Landing Trail. My Masters degree is in Educational Psychology with a specialty in Measurement, Evaluation and Cognition. I am inspired by my students daily and I enjoy helping them to grow their skills in understanding and creating text. I love living in the summer village of Island Lake in a cabin surrounded by trees, knitting and playing trivia games. My three sons are all adults now and live with their families (i.e. grand-doggies) in Edmonton. I welcome questions from students and parents and I look forward to working with all of you in the coming year.
