Our family began to develop the Heter Haven Academy concept when our oldest son was reaching school age.                                                                                                                                                                                         Having been a public school teacher for many years, I have a strong personal educational philosophy.  As I began to explore schooling options, I felt that my child's educational needs would be best met in a a small intimate educational haven. 


The Wise Seeks Knowledge


My Philosophy

It is my belief that many children do their best in a setting which allows for as much personalized instruction as possible. Students should be allowed to master concepts at their own individual pace, yet, be held accountable for their progress.

It Because all children have their own preferred learning styles, I attempt to provide learning experiences through a variety of mediums.                                                                                                                                           My intent is to foster each student's natural curiosity and desire to learn.  I encourage children to grow in their personal strengths as well as help them to strengthen their areas of weaknesses.
