Heidi Brunner is beginning her first year at Congressional School this year. She is coming to Congressional with nine years of lower primary teaching experience beginning in Southwest Virginia, near where she grew up. For the past 4 years Heidi has been teaching at international and bilingual schools in Switzerland, where she has had the wonderful and unique opportunity to work with teachers, parents, and children from all over the world. In her spare time she loves traveling to new places, learning to cook different types of food and has recently started teaching herself to play the ukulele.
“My favorite thing about being a teacher is taking part in the transformation that happens as students ask questions, make new discoveries, work together to solve problems and grow into lifelong learners.”
