Hello, my name is Sharon Heffelfinger, and I am a new 5 year old kindergarten teacher at Hawley Environmental in Room 14. I have worked for Milwaukee Public Schools for over 22 years, and have been a teacher for 12 years. I have taught kindergarten for 9 years, I was also the math teacher leader for 2 years and at the beginning of my teaching career, I taught 1st grade. All of my teaching was at 65th Street School, which has closed after the 2011-2012 school year. I graduated from Alverno College with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I am married and have 2 children, Eric and Alex; a daughter-in-law named Jacquie and a 2 year old granddaughter named Rose. I am very excited to join the staff at Hawley and look forward to meeting the students and families of Hawley Environmental School.
