Hello! My name is Janette Heil (Heil rhymes with Kyle) and I am looking forward to another year working with students in grades K-5 to improve their reading. This is my eighth year teaching in the School District of Haverford Township. Before becoming the Reading Specialist, I taught Primary Learning Support. Prior to joining the Coopertown family in September 2013, I was lucky enough to spend time teaching in the other four elementary buildings and in Haverford's Extended School Year program.
I grew up in West Chester, PA and graduated from Elizabethtown College in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a concentration in Special Education. In 2015 I completed my Master of Education in Reading at Cabrini College. I am a member of the Keystone State Reading Association and the International Literacy Association.
My husband, Chris, and I live with our daughter, Penny, and our three cats in King of Prussia. In my free time, I enjoy reading, running and working out, knitting, and cheering for the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. I also enjoy spending time with my parents and my younger brother, Dan.
I am looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Email is the best way to reach me, but I check my voicemail at least once each day.
