Heather Arbuckle Bio

Hello! My name is Heather Arbuckle and I teach RLA/SS in 5th Grade. A graduate of Iowa State University, this is year 21 for me in education. In addition, it is my 3rd year being part of the Press Pride. I dreamed of being a teacher since I was a second-grader. I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education in 1994. During my career, I have taught Pre-K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades as well as Reading Recovery. When I am not in my classroom entertaining my students with amazing books and not so amazing “Dad Jokes”, you might see me on the trails walking my two dogs. I also enjoy baking, movies, and photography in my spare time.The thing I enjoy most about teaching is watching young readers discover confidence in new text. Those lightbulb moments  are truly priceless! It is going to be a great year.
