I am Heather Rylance and I have been teaching at State Street Academy for 13 years. I graduated from Saginaw Valley State University in 2005 with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and my ZA endorsement. State Street Academy is actually where I started subbing, which got my "foot in the door", and I was hired for 4th grade in 2007. I taught 4th grade for 1 year, then was a co-teacher in a preschool classroom for 5 years before I finally got my own room as lead teacher. I have been a lead teacher for 7 years now and I love it! I recently took on the role of director of the preschool program too.
I am married and have three children, Hailey (10), Noah (13) and Camrie (16). When I am not busy with work stuff, I love spending time with my family and friends. I am an outdoor girl, so I like to hunt and fish. One of my favorite places to go on vacation is Silver Lake Sand Dunes.
I love working at State Street Academy because we are such a close family. I love all the students and their families here and the relationships that have been built over the years. My co-workers are amazing and we always come together as a team to do what is best for our kiddos.
