MARK LEWIS - Head of School
If I were the Head of a School where Heather was seeking employment, I would hire her on the spot even if there were no position to fill. Her contributions extend far beyond any job descriptions and any school is immediately improved by having her on staff. I have been an educator for over thirty years and have been fortunate to work with many fine educators. To borrow a sports perspective; Heather would make my all time first all-star team.
