Grade 2 Teacher
About Miss Hebert
I became a teacher to make a difference in the lives of children, both academically and socially/emotionally. I enjoy forming relationships with children that lie on a foundation of trust where we can each learn from each other and prosper. I began working with children as a child myself since I grew up with a daycare in my home. I continued as an after-school counselor, personal tutor, and preschool teacher for several years. Finally, I completed two full year internships as part of my Master's program, each in a different school district, before teaching here at Andrew Avenue. My experiences with children have all shown me how important a positive relationship is to successful learning. I LOVE getting to know my students and making them smile through their learning!
I love teaching at Andrew Avenue because of its strong sense of community. Everyone is very friendly and I quickly became comfortable. I've only taught here since 2017, yet I feel I’ve been a part of the Andrew Avenue family for a while. I can't wait to continue teaching at AAES, "A Great Place to be!"
Education: I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Southern CT State University in 2013 and my Master of Arts in Elementary Teaching from Quinnipiac University in 2017.
Years of Experience: Since 2017
Years Working at Naugatuck Public Schools: Since 2017
A few of my favorite things: If we aren't talking about donated classroom materials, then I love caramel machiattos from Dunkin Donuts, or really any coffee! I also really enjoy hiking and walking outdoors, doing yoga, and reading. I have an adventurous side and love roller coasters, ziplining, and trying new things. This past summer I canoed and rode a horse for the first time! Marshalls is my absolute favorite store and I can never go in and leave with just one item! Blue is my favorite color. Italian food is my favorite, especially CHEESY pasta and pizza, but I also love tapas and paella. I'm a huge animal lover and especially love cats. I have 2 cats at home named Bella (pronounced in Spanish) and Ollie (our new kitten!) and they are my babies. Check out the slideshow to the right to see pictures of them!
A fun fact about me: A fun fact about me is that I can speak Spanish and I lived in Spain for a summer with a host family! I also have a blue and gold macaw at home named Phil. I've also gone skydiving! :)
