Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Heckman is in her 5th year teaching Engage at BCS to third and fourth graders and is new to Berkshire this year. Berkshire's Engage Studio is new this year and she is beyond excited to deliver an exciting hands-on STEM experience to 7th and 8th graders. She is energetic, creative, and has been lovingly described as "if Betty Crocker has access to power tools" She loves coding and programming as much as she loves to DIY and create new things. Whether it's a homemade Halloween costume or a screencast of her favorite game, she wants to see how it works, take it apart and make something new. She is a Spartan Alumna and she lives in Royal Oak with her husband, her 2-year-old son, a dog, a cat and about 3,000 vinyl LP records. This summer, she won the grand prize of "Henry Ford Teacher Innovator" and is titled of the 10 most innovative teachers in the country by The Henry Ford.
She believes that you are, what you create for this world. So get in there, get messy and take a risk to try something new.
