Heidi Brewer, a First Grade teacher at Jane Phillips Elementary School, was named the Bartlesville Public School District Teacher of the Month for August 2018 by Arvest Bank and Oakley Chevrolet Buick.

In recognition of this honor, Ms. Brewer was presented with a plaque and a $300 check by Annah Fischer, Arvest Bank Marketing Manager, and David Oakley Jr., owner of Oakley Chevrolet Buick.

Ms. Brewer is in her 19th year of teaching. She has been teaching First Grade for four years and has previously taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Third Grade.

Her own Second Grade teacher was the inspiration behind her choice to be an educator. “My Second Grade teacher was an inspiration to me.  She had a lot of patience and understanding that made me love school.  So from then on I wanted to be a teacher just like her,” said Brewer.

Ms. Brewer knows how important trust is in a teacher-student relationship. “Success isn’t always measured by what is published, but rather by the lives that are touched and changed because I was able to be their teacher,” she remarked.

When she isn’t teaching, Ms. Brewer stays busy in the community. She volunteers with Special Olympics and the Santa Shop and PTO Bingo night at Jane Phillips and has taught a Zumba class with her coworkers. Ms. Brewer is also involved with the youth program at her church and teaches Sunday school classes, leads service activities with youth on Wednesday nights, and helped with the young ladies at girl’s summer camp.

Bartlesville Public Schools is proud to join Arvest Bank and Oakley Chevrolet Buick in honoring Ms. Heidi Brewer as a Bartlesville Teacher of the Month.
