Mrs. Millicent Heavner
I started my career as a school counselor in January 1996 in Gaston County, NC. Since that time, I have had the privilege of working at three different elementary schools: Arlington (Gaston) for only a very short semester, North Brook (Lincoln) for a little over 3 years, and Tryon (Gaston) for almost 20 years! I found my way back to Lincoln County Schools but on a completely different journey... as a MIDDLE SCHOOL counselor! I never thought I would work in a middle school, but I absolutely love it!!
I've always been curious and love to learn new things. Education is an important part of my life and always has been! My elementary school years were magical for me, and that's where my lifelong love of learning and my commitment to being an educator began. I am a proud graduate of Cherryville Jr.-Sr. High School and Appalachian State University, and I still sport my favorite Ironmen Blue and Mountaineer Black and Yellow colors!
I am married to my high school sweetheart (a high school teacher and coach); Momma to 3 children, 3 dogs, 1 cat, and all the birds that will gather at my feeders! I find myself cheering on my favorite athletes... making trips to the beautiful mountains... collecting vintage school furniture and children's books... tinkering with gardens and canning... and watching Hallmark movies!
I'm a good listener, a hard worker, a decent cook/baker, an organizer, and a loyal companion. When I grow up, I want to be a children's book author!
