Heather has always had a strong passion for working with children and running a well-organized classroom. After graduating from Texas State University with her Bachelor’s degree in Education and certified to teach Early childhood, she landed her first teaching job in Mesquite ISD as a Second Grade Teacher. She was a classroom teacher for 18 years where she also taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. She spent two years as an instructional specialist aiding teachers in kinder through 6th grade where her organization skills were really put to use.
While Heather has a strong passion for teaching and building relationships with her students, she also enjoyed using organizational strategies when setting up her classroom each fall in order to create an environment that was calm, welcoming, and structured for all types of learners. As Heather modeled her organizational skills with her students on a daily basis, her students began to recreate organizational strategies with their journals, station work, and supplies throughout the year. As the lead teacher of her grade level, and head of many schoolwide organizations; she helped her co-workers stay organized with everything from supplies to files. Heather believes that part of her success as a teacher is due to her organization and the structured environment she created for her co-workers and students each year.
Not only was Heather’s classroom organized, but she creates that calming environment at home as well. Organization has helped her personally and mentally throughout her life. She loves making sure all closets, cabinets, drawers and rooms are all in an organized – functional fashion…at all times. Everything has a place and finding that place that is most functional and makes sense is key!
After 18 years of teaching, Heather was led to believe that it was time to pursue other passions in her life outside of education. Through a close friend and client of her Health Coaching business, Heather came across Sorted Out. Instantly, it sparked her interest and led her into the world of helping others see the benefit of having an organized lifestyle. Being a part of the Sorted Out team gives Heather the opportunity to use her talent to provide organization and function to other people’s world…all while building those strong relationships to find what works best for each client. Utilizing this passion with her clients allows her to guide them in finding the perfect organization service that will lead to a more functional lifestyle for them and their whole family.
