Welcome to Mrs. Heinzmann's Homepage at Truman Middle School * 2013-2014
I graduated from Eastern Washington University 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 22 years, all of which have been for Tacoma Public Schools. I taught 4th and 5th grades up until five 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 diesel mechanic, repairing the Strykers, helicopters, etc. on JBLM. We have been married for 27 years and have two "kids" --Leah is 22 and finishing up her AA degree; Aaron is 19 and starting at UW-T. The animals in our lives include two yellow Labs named Daisy Mae and Thor, as well as two cats: Penny and Franklin. I enjoy... in no specific order... cooking and baking, dogs, chocolate, java, reading The Tacoma News Tribune daily, various magazines, and novels; "Pinning" on Pinterest, garage-sale-ing, visiting my college buddy in Spokane, baking and cooking, 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.
