Mrs. Sandy Jo Heller

Welcome to our Kindergarten Class.    I have been teaching Kindergarten and First Grade for over 30 years.  My favorite part of teaching is seeing the excitement in the students when they become avid readers and realize the entire world just opened up to all of this knowledge within their finger tips.   I have a B.A. in Elementary Education and a Minor in Music from Bluffotn College in Ohio.  I earned my Masters Degree in Reading with my Kindergarten Certificate from the Univ. of Dayton Ohio.  I am Reading Endorsed and ESOL Endorsed.   I just love to read and to teach reading to my students.   I have been married to my wonderful husband for 29 years.  We have a dog, Lily and a conure parrot Patches.   


I was born in Tennessee but was raised in Ohio.   In 1995 we moved to Ocala.  We really love this area.  As a family, we love to go camping.  So anytime there is a long weekend or holiday, we are gone camping in our camper.  We have many happy memories of camping as a family.  My hobbies include reading, looming and baking.  I love to drink sweet tea and coffee.  I am a huge football and baseball fan. We have one daughter who is married and is expecting our first grandchild in the Fall.  We also have 2 grand dogs as well. 


Please feel free to contact me any time that you have any questions or concerns. My email is:  I also love to hear about positive accomplishments of your child.
