1st Grade Teacher
Heidi Lance has been a member of the Grant Park community since 1998 when she moved there with her husband and beloved dog, Stella. She is also the proud mother of two beautifully spirited girls who bring love and light into her life. She is a fan of rescued animals, her dog and rabbit, a boy named Sue and Schwarz. She loves teaching but finds rejuvenation doing yoga and attending live music shows.
Heidi was a part of the original group of educators at ANCS who worked together to create a school environment designed for each child to thrive. From the start, she helped to create curriculum, mentored new teachers, and lead professional development sessions particularly related to literacy. She has continued working with her peers on a variety of committees to continually update the school’s curriculum as best practices have emerged and evolved in the field of education. To keep herself abreast of these practices she went back and obtained a Masters degree in Education with a specialization in Reading and Literacy from Walden University. Heidi considers it a great honor to be a part of all that ANCS has achieved through the years.
