Hello, Mayfield Bobcats! My name is Mrs. Heffron and I'm proud to teach 5th grade language arts and social studies. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 8th year teaching here at Mayfield Intermediate School and my 11th year teaching overall. I have a B.S. degree in both elementary and special education from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania. Prior to teaching at Mayfield, I taught as a special education teacher in Pennsylvania to 2nd and 4th grade students. I recently earned my master's degree from George Mason University in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Literacy Leadership for Diverse Schools, and of this past summer, I'm officially a certified Reading Specialist! Helping students become stronger readers is truly my passion, and I am excited to work with you and your child as we explore the 5th grade curriculum!
Important information about my classroom behavior management plan, curriculum resources, and important upcoming dates will be provided at Mayfield's Open House on August 15th from 4-8 p.m. and during the first week of school. Throughout the year, parents will have access to student resources through the Division's learning management system, Schoology. The link is: www.mcpsva.schoology.com.
I can't wait to meet all of my upcoming students! The 2019-2020 school year is going to be a great one!
