To the Firelands community,
I am truly excited to rejoin the learning community of Firelands Local School District. I consider it a privilege to return to and invest in my Alma Mater as the new 8th grade English Language Arts teacher at South Amherst Middle School.
Upon graduating high school I enrolled at Malone University where I earned a B.A. in English. Following college I moved to Chicago where my initial career path was in the fields of Public Relations and Marketing. When I relocated to Ohio I obtained a teaching license through Notre Dame College in South Euclid, and soon after became employed at Rittman Village Exempted School District in Wayne County. Over the past several years I have taught at the middle school and high school levels.
As an educator I strive to help students recognize their individual talents and prepare them for future opportunities in a competitive, global society. I accomplish this through providing a classroom culture that is student-centered, rich in technology, fosters critical thinking skills, and provides a bridge between student interest and content.
I look forward to serving the learning community of Firelands, meeting my students, seeing past friends and acquaintances, and making new ones.
Mrs. Heather Searight
