Welcome to my class page.

  I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year.  After looking at my roster, I of course saw many new names.  Upon further inspection, I was elated to see the names of  some of my former students.  What a blessing it is that I get to teach some of the same babies I taught in Pre-K at Westside Elementary.  I cannot wait to get reacquainted with my former students, and get to know my new darlings as well.  We are going to have a fabulous year learning and growing together. 

Getting to know 
Mrs. Heather Wrye 

I was born and raised here in Valdosta.  and received my education at Valdosta State University.  I graduated in 2008 and served as a substitute teacher in the county school system until I began working at Westside Elementary as Special Education Paraprofessional in 2010.   I am married; we have three children and two grand children.  Some of my favorite things include spending time with my family, listening to music of all kinds, animals, and teaching at Westside Elementary.
