Mrs. Tammi Hettinger

Welcome to Kindergarten! I attended Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill., where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education, with junior high endorsements in math and science. I also completed my Masters in Reading Instruction from Aurora University in May 2017. I started teaching at Grande Park Elementary School in 2011 where I taught second grade for four years, fifth grade for four years, and then decided to start new adventures in kindergarten!

Since working in District 308, I have served on many building level committees as well as the district math committee. We worked as a pre-kindergarten through 12th grade group to align the district’s math curriculum and resources to the Common Core Standards. I am now GP's Mastery Connect Coach to help our teachers better use and understand the features of Mastery Connect. I also led a community service club called Grande Park Gives Back and helped coach Girls on the Run.

I'm looking forward to a year of many firsts together in kindergarten!
