My name is Heather Thude-Orlowski. I have been a teacher for 25 years. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Ottawa University and Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. I am also a certified Reading Recovery teacher/CLIP trained.
Over the course of my career I have taught, ESL, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th/5th multi-age, 7th grade Language Arts, and I am currently a K-12 ELL Teacher/Specialist. My teaching career began in Kyrene, then moved onto Florence, and for the last 7 years, I have been in Higley.
I am an Arizona Native and the mom to 4 amazing boys, including identical twins! I have 3 in college and one who is in high school. I spend most of my spare time watching my youngest son play high school baseball and football. When I'm not doing that, you can find me at the beach!
