Welcome to Mrs. Heinzmann's Homepage at Truman Middle School * 2016-20176th and 7th Grade Language Arts
I graduated from Eastern Washington University (Go Eagles!) and obtained my Masters from the University of Washington-Tacoma. (Go Dawgs!) On-going education has most recently included an AP Institute, AVID Workshop, and Springboard Training.
I have been teaching for 26 years, all of which have been for Tacoma Public Schools. I taught 4th and 5th grades up until 11 years ago when I made the move to middle school. I am (still) so thrilled with my transition and most especially Truman! ---Go Titans!---
My husband Stew is a retired diesel mechanic, having repaired the Strykers, helicopters, etc. on JBLM. We have been married for 30 years and have two "kids" --Leah is 25, working for Starbucks in New York while pursuing a Criminal Justice degree; Aaron is 22, graduated from UW-T and is currently serving in the Air Force in Texas, awaiting orders to be stationed in England. The animals in our lives include two yellow Labs named Daisy Mae and Thor, as well as one cat named Franklin. I enjoy... in no specific order... cooking and baking, dogs, chocolate, java, reading various magazines, and novels; "Pinning" on Pinterest, garage-sale-ing, visiting my college buddy in Spokane, hanging out with my husband and kids, a great movie with popcorn and soda... Hmm?! I think I'll stop there for now! : )
Hope you got to know me a bit. I'd love to hear from you and get to know your interests, too.
Thank you for coming to the website.
