About Heather Orr...
Position: Yoga and PE Instructor
This is my eleventh year at Arizona College Preparatory. I am proud to be a part of such a successful school, district, and community. I teach Yoga and Physical Education. Students in my classes can expect to work hard and learn a lot of important life lessons.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish in 1993. While attending U of A I was a four year scholarship athlete on the volleyball team. Three years after my undergraduate degree, I earned my Master's degree in Teaching and Teacher Education from U of A. My teaching career began in 1993 in Tucson where I taught Spanish and Language Arts in the Tucson Unified School District. Since then I have taught English, Spanish, and ESL to students ranging from toddlers to grandparents. I have been practicing yoga since 2000 and I love to share its benefits with others.
My Educational Philosophy
My goal as a teacher and coach is to provide opportunities for students and athletes to become their best.
