Welcome to Mr. Heit's 6th Grade Physical Science Class!
Hello! I am very excited to start my sixth year teaching overall and my first year teaching here at Roosevelt Middle School!
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls in Biology and a Master of Arts in Education, Curriculum, and Instruction from the University of Mississippi.
I grew up in Blaine and went to school here but throughout my professional career have moved to differernt places to pursue my passion - teaching science! I taught 6th and 8th grade science in the North Panola School District in Como, Mississippi for three years, served as an AmeriCorps VISTA at a science education non-profit in Reno, Nevada, served in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia (Afaan Oromo Beekta?), and most recently taught 7th grade science for the last two years at KIPP North Star Academy in North Minneapolis.
In my free time I love biking, camping, playing board games, spending time with my wife and son, and playing Nitro Type.
I am excited for the opportunity to learn with your child this year and for being a part of growing their skills in science literacy. Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve science success!
