Welcome to Mrs. Heffron's Class!

Hello and welcome to Mrs. Heffron's Reading Class! I would like to begin by telling you about myself. I have been a teacher for over ten years and have enjoyed many of those years as a Wilkes-Barre Area School District employee. I graduated from Wilkes University with my Bachelor's Degree and went on to get my Master's Degree, in both ESL and Reading from King's College. I look forward to meeting my students from year to year and know that they will learn to enjoy reading for entertainment as well as for academic purposes. I hope you enjoy all my site has to offer!
