WEBSITE UNDER UPDATES AND CONSTRUCTION!



The Basics

My name is Mrs. Heather Harvey. My family lives in Pismo Beach.  I have 2 children that attend LMUSD schools.  I have taught for 16 years, the last 5 of which have been at Shell Beach Elementary.  I love our school, our kids, and my wonderful teacher colleagues.


My Teaching Philosophy



  • Consistency

  • Fairness

  • Motivation

  • High expectations

  • Treating each student as an individual

Our Class Wish List !

  • Baby wipes

  • Disinfectant wipes

  • Astro brights copy paper

  • Wide ruled lined binder paper

  • Large glue sticks


WISH LIST FULFILLED FOR NOW!!! THANK YOU TO ALL FAMILIES FOR BRINGING IN SUPPLIES! I WILL UPDATE OR SEND A DOJO MESSAGE WHEN WE ARE RUNNING LOW ON CLASSROOM SUPPLIES.



Class Supplies

I will provide each student with pencils, paper, crayons, colored pencils, whiteboards, whiteboard markers, glue, scissors, erasers, and notebooks for our class subject journals. Our desks are small, so students may also bring a normal sized pencil box/pouch for school supplies that might fit inside, such as a highlighter or favorite pens. Per school policy, no toys. Nothing will be allowed to be stored on desktops, as they are cleaned frequently. Thanks for your understanding!


Contact Me

I prefer email or messaging on Class Dojo instead of phone calls or voice messages.  I will return your email within 24 hours.  You can also reach me by sending a note in the Shark Folder and I will respond that day with a written note home.

Email:  heather.harvey@lmusd.org or message feature through Class Dojo

School phone number: 805 474 3760; please leave a message with the school secretary
