Ms. Heather Roberts
Hello and welcome to 5th grade! I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Big Lake Elementary. This is my 19th year teaching and my 17th year teaching 5th grade! 5th graders are my favorite age group. I was born in Kodiak and raised in Valdez. I have a Bachelor's degree from UAA and a Master's degree from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington. Both of my degrees are in Elementary Education. I have a 15-year-old daughter and a 25 year old son. I am thrilled to be living in the Matanuska Valley. My great-grandparents moved here in 1935 with the colony project and my mom's parents moved here in the late 50s to homestead out on the Butte. I have so much family here and it's a great place to live.
