My name is Heather Free and this is my fifth year teaching at RMS. I graduated from Rockmart High School and received my Bachelors degree from Ashford University. I earned my teaching certification at North Georgia College State University. I am certified in Middle Grades Social Studies, Reading, ELA, and Special Education. For the past four years, I have taught sixth grade Social Studies. This year, I am excited to be teaching seventh grade English Language Arts.
My Philosophy: I believe every child is special and capable of being successful in and outside the classroom. In order to help them achieve their goals, I will provide a safe, caring environment that helps them grow academically, socially, and emotionally. At the end of the school year, I hope my students leave my classroom as responsible members of the school and community with a love and respect for themselves, others, and their environment.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to a wonderful year at RMS!
