Mrs. Cathy Heigl

I was born in Wisconsin and raised in a military family. I have lived in Iowa, California, Kansas, New York, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina, but North Carolina is the state I decided to make my home! I graduated from Kutztown University in Pennsylvania with a bachelors degree in elementary education and received my master's degree in elementary education from East Carolina University. I began my teaching career with Camp Lejeune Dependents' Schools where I taught kindergarten for eight years at Stone Street Elementary School. I then decided to spend more time with my family, so I taught preschool at St. Anne's Parish Day School for seven years. This is my fifth year teaching at Northwoods Elementary School. I am married and have four children, two sons and two daughters. I also have two amazing sons-in-law! I am a huge Disney fan and have been to Disney World at least eight times. In my free time I like to read, go to the gym, spend time with my family, and travel. I am passionate about teaching and my goal is to help each of my students feel competent, successful, and valued!
