Heather Elston Bio

Hello, I am Heather Elston and I am so excited to be returning to McKinney ISD and joining the McNeil family! I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Health and a Master’s in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. I have previously  taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th grade.  My husband, who is also a teacher in McKinney, and I have 3 amazing kiddos, Evan (12), Ava (7), and Nora (3). We have a small 4 acre hobby farm about 30 minutes away from McNeil where we have a garden, goats, chickens, guinea fowl, 2 lazy farm cats, and 4 large happy dogs. I am so excited for this year, and I look forward to meeting all of you! We have a fun year of learning adventures ahead of us!
