    My name is Karla Heleotes and this year I will be the Gifted teacher. I am excited to begin my 26th year of teaching and my 12th year in the Higley District. I look forward to getting to know the community at Higley Traditional Academy.

    A little about myself... I was born in Indiana but moved to Arizona when I was 14 so I feel like I am almost a native. I went to Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!). My husband and I have been married for 25 years. We have one son, Ethan, who is a junior at Williams Field High School. I have 3 old and grumpy cats and 2 crazy corgis! The one on the left is Shea and the one on the right is Lulu.

    In my spare time I enjoy playing ball with the dogs, taking them for walks and road trips, reading all different kinds of books, spending time with the family and shopping at Target!
