Welcome to the Fourth Grade!
I am pleased to be your teacher this school year. I will be teaching Social Studies and Science to three of the Fourth grade classes. If you have me for homeroom, you will also have the following teachers as part of your rotation. Mrs. Julie Turnage in Room 512 will teach English Language Arts on a daily basis. Mrs. Jenifer Fontenot in Room 514 will teach Math daily. This year, all students are mandated to wear masks indoors and you will be trading classes for instruction.
I am a native of Westlake but I lived and taught in Arizona for 18 years before returning to my hometown. As an Elementary teacher, I've mainly taught from Pre-K through fifth grade with most of my experience in Second grade. I am married to Sheldon Hefler and we have two children. Our daughter, Jordan, is an art and photography graduate from LSU. She works as a freelance photographer, graphic designer, and social media influencer. Our son, Morgan, recently graduated from LSU with a degree in petroleum engineering and construction management. Both of my children were graduates of Westlake High School. GO RAMS!
Western Heights is a wonderful school! This was my school as a little girl and it was also the place that I did my student teaching. I taught one year at Westwood and then, moved to a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. 14 years ago my family transferred from Glendale, Arizona back to Westlake and I resumed teaching right back where I started from! I made a full circle.
I hope you will have fond memories of your time in Fourth grade, Noelle Hefler
