Hi! My name is Heather Canterbury and I am the new teacher for 7th Grade Social Studies. This will be my first-year teaching at Colonel Smith Middle School. This is my second time being at this school district. My previous role at the district was as a student and not as a teacher. Just like many of you, I have strong ties to the military. My dad was in the Army, I was in the Navy, and now I am an Army spouse. My youngest son followed in my footsteps and will also be a student in this district. My oldest son will be attending Buena High School this year, so he comes in at a close second.
When I am not in the classroom, my family and I love to explore new places and embark on new adventures. Thanks to the military we have been able to live and explore different parts of the country. My family’s favorite place to visit are Disney parks, because why limit the fun to just one park when it has so many locations.
I look forward to being able to guide you on your 7th grade journey. My goal is to facilitate an engaging learning environment, so that you are able to achieve your personal best.
