6th - Ms. McQuaid

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Heather McQuaid

I am very excited to be joining the Next Generation STEAM Academy's family.   I will be teaching 6th grade this year.  I am not new to this exciting grade and love this age group.  I have been teaching in some capacity or other for over 15 years. I have some new and exciting ideas planned for this academic year.

I host a classroom that is a safe haven for all my students.   The classroom holds high expectations for my students, but also a place that all ideas that are shared are also respected.  Students that leave my room, will have learned to think more critically, think outside of the box, and be more open and respectful of differing ideas.

Now a  little about me personally.   I am a single parent with a beautiful daughter who is also in the  6th grade.  We enjoy playing with our six year old dog and two year old cat.  We love farmer markets, festivals, and traveling.   We are both avid readers.
