Mentor Teachers

What is a mentor teacher?

Similar to the reggio “pedagogista”, TLS is creating the role of mentor teacher. With our ongoing efforts to live the little in The Little School, we discovered that we could thrive just that much more with this role. Like the name suggests, they are there to work with the teachers, help them brain storm ideas, trouble shoot sticky patches, and be another set of eyes, ears and big brains in your building. We are hoping they will be a quick access point for teachers and parents alike. We are thrilled to see this dream in action.


Heather is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have a daughter named Kyndall and a son named Dominic. She has been working in a five-star center since 2009 and has experience with all age groups, but loves the curiosity of the younger children.  She earned a certificate in Early Childhood Education and is continuing her schooling to receive her Associates Degree. When Heather is not working with children at work and home, she is spending time with her family and friends. She also loves trips to the beach with her husband and children every chance they get.
