Ms. Heather Yeakley - 4th Grade ELA Teacher

Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Heather Yeakley and this is my third year teaching at Rocky River Elementary. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I completed my student teaching here at Rocky River, and have been here ever since! I have been in 4th grade all three years of my teaching career, and I am excited to be teaching all subject areas this school year. I hold high expectations for each of my students, and strive to create a welcoming environment in which your child will learn to hold high expectations for themselves as well. This website will be kept up to date with our class schedule, academic studies, and useful websites for my students and their families.

I was born and raised in Monroe, North Carolina but fell in love with Charlotte after moving here for college. My fiancé and I have two puppies that we take with us just about everywhere, so they have become quite the topic of conversation amongst my students and I in the mornings, at lunch, and at recess. When I am not at the school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love cooking, fitness, and the outdoors. 

I look forward to this school year full of exciting adventures and learning!
