Meet Ms. von der Heyde

This is my second year at Claypit Hill School, but my first as a first grade teacher! Previously, I was a special education teacher's assistant in the fourth grade. I've also worked with the fourth and fifth grade student council and the K-4 BASE program at Claypit. I graduated from Providence College in 2016, where I majored in Elementary and Special Education and minored in Spanish. While at Providence College I was able to teach in classrooms from Kindergarten through 6th Grade. I did my student teaching in first grade, so I am very excited to come back to first grade!

In my free time, I love to run, and am always searching for a new race to enter! I ran my first half marathon in May 2017, and have my hopes set on a full marathon some day. I also love to spend my time with family and friends.
