Ms. Heather Chitwood
I hope you had a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing classroom. I have my master's degree in elementary education. This is my 2nd year in a 1st grade classroom. I am starting my 12th year of teaching and my 6th year at MCES. I have two daughters, one starting college this year and one at West Johnston. I enjoy spending time with my girls, animals, and working out. I look forward to working with you and your children.
