Welcome back to a new school year!  My name is Holli Wheeler and I will be your child’s third grade teacher.  I grew up in Iowa and received my Bachelors of Art in Education at the University of Northern Iowa. This will be my eleventh year of teaching third grade at Heights Elementary! I am married and have a four year old daughter, Hadley. We are very excited to welcome our second child in January. My favorite things to do are spend time with my family, cheer on the Iowa Hawkeyes, go shopping with my daughter, and read a good book while sipping on my Starbucks iced coffee.


This year is sure to be one filled with excitement and learning. I come to your students with many new ideas and exciting teaching and learning strategies to implement.  Your child is going to have a wonderful and memorable year in the third grade.


A child’s family has a strong impact on student learning and success. That said, I would like to welcome you as partners in your child’s education.  I will keep you informed of classroom happenings through my classroom website, progress reports and student planners. These tools will provide you with important classroom information as well as your child’s academic progress.
