Mr. Heasley's Class Website

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about teaching at Tukes Valley Middle School for an eleventh year. I feel very lucky to teach at such a great school with supportive parents and awesome students.

I grew up in Battle Ground, and I graduated from CAM Academy. Before becoming a teacher at TVM, I worked at the Child Development Program at Washington State University Vancouver, I was a substitute teacher for the school district, and I was an event programmer for Clark College. I particularly enjoyed planning events that promoted multiculturalism. This passion of mine is evident when I teach about ancient civilizations and cultures. I am deeply committed to the teaching profession for I believe it is my calling, and I can't imagine doing anything else. Over the past few years, I have served as an NEA delegate at the Representative Assemblies in Orlando, DC, Boston, and Minneapolis, where I worked with other educators to advocate for our nation’s public school students. I was also fortunate to be invited to participate in the NEA's National Leadership Summit in Dallas, Texas.

I believe communication is vital for a student's academic growth, so I encourage parents to contact me directly if they ever have any questions or concerns, if they would like to chaperone on an upcoming field trip, or if they would like to volunteer in the classroom. I am also available to meet after school until 3:10 PM or later by appointment.
