Hello, my name is Kelly Heitic and I'm very excited to be teaching second grade at Knox Gifted Academy this year!

My Education and Professional Background

I grew up in Ohio where I taught my first year as a first grade teacher. Then I moved to Arizona and joined Chandler Unified School district as a Kindergarten teacher. I moved up and taught second grade for a couple years before I became a Media Specialist. I enjoyed project based learning and teaching research so much that I decided to take the leap to teach gifted! I hold an Early Childhood Certificate with a K-12 Reading Endorsement as well as Media Specialist Endorsement.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe great teachers strive not to give good answers but give great questions. My goal is to plant the seed of curiosity in my students. I love and enjoy learning everyday. I want to share with my students this passion and show how fun and exciting learning truly is!
