Heather Rylance

  • Dept: GSRP Director

I am Heather Rylance and I have been teaching at State Street Academy for 16 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 10 years now and I love it! I am the director of the preschool program as well.

I am married and have three children, Hailey (13), Noah (17) and Camrie (20).  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.
