Mrs. Heather Spicola
I am excited to be returning this year as the Blue Angels' Science Teacher. I also coach the Girls Excelling in Math and Science club (GEMS), open to all sixth through eighth grade girls.
I grew up in Michigan and attended Michigan State University. I taught for a few years and then transitioned to a career in corporate learning and development. During this time I completed my Master's degree in Instructional Technology at UNC Charlotte. Subsequently, I enjoyed some time as a stay-at-home (never home) mom, room mom, and substitute teacher.
I live in Iron Station with my husband, daughter, and Maggie, our Golden Retriever. I spend my whole day with your teenagers, and go home to my own! My son Jordan is a mechanical engineering senior at NCSU and my daughter Aubrey is a senior at NLHS.
My pleasures are shopping, reading, cooking, and yoga, but am usually driving someone, somewhere, instead!
I enjoy teaching, and work hard to incorporate plenty of hands-on activities and technology. Please see my Curriculum pages for more information and resources on what is involved in eighth grade science. Follow the Daily Announcements and Assignments page to keep-up with what we are studying and how! Looking forward to a great year. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
P.S. If you contact me, I absolutely respond as soon as I can. If you do contact me and don't hear from me within twenty-four hours, I did not get your message! Please try another method!
