Ms. Denise Heavner

A little about myself:  I grew up in Seneca, Kansas and graduated from Nemaha Valley High School.  (It is now known as Nemaha Central so I feel really old because the high school I graduated from no longer exists.)  I earned my Associate of Arts degree from Highland Community College and my Bachelor of Science in Education from Emporia State University.  I have been teaching mathematics since 1994.  I have taught in extremely small schools, medium-size schools, and large schools.  I have been at Topeka High since 2011.

I have two teenagers and both of them attend classes at Topeka Public Schools.   The three of us recently moved to Topeka.  This cut my drive time from 30 minutes each way to about three minutes each way.  So far we have loved living in Topeka.  The only thing we miss is the quiet times in the country.

Feel free to contact me at any time.  I tend to answer emails a little quicker than phone messages since I want the room to be empty if I am speaking about a student on the telephone.
