About Ms. Heidi Raaf...
Position: 2nd grade teacher
Welcome to the wonderful world of education!
My Education and Professional Background
Hello there! My name is Ms. Heidi Raaf (/r/off). I love teaching 2nd grade! It is by far my favorite grade level. I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Development from Northern Arizona University back in 2003. I find such fulfillment in educating our youth, knowing that I’m making a positive impact on their lives. After school hours, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, playing tug-a-war with my black lab Stormie, and weekends on the ball field with my fiance, watching my future stepson pitch.
My Educational Philosophy
As an educator, I feel that it is imperative to make a positive impact on each and every child’s life. I strive to equip them with the life skills needed to succeed and problem solve in the real world. I find myself serving as an authoritative yet caring adult whom they can trust and confide in. I truly hope my students find themselves empowered and ready to take on life’s next challenge.
