Allison Heiduk
3rd Grade Teacher
Vieja Valley School
Hope School District

With more than 22 years of teaching experience, Heiduk uses her natural enthusiasm and eagerness to support both students and colleagues as they learn and grow. Having taught in the Hope School District since 1995, teaching third-graders since 2009, she has extensive experience in working with elementary students.

Most recently, Allison has focused her work on implementing the Common Core State Standards in her classroom and mentoring her colleagues, who are benefitting from her early work on the new standards.

“Being able to be a teacher leader and provide insight to teachers, ask questions of teachers, and also to be able to learn from others, has not only been a great educational contribution to my site, district, and profession, but also to my own personal growth as a teacher,” Heiduk said.
