Welcome to my blog! I’m Heather Korrell and I am a 5th grade reading teacher by day and a grad student by night at WKU. I also stay very busy with my church Bethesda Ministries, where I am the music director, I volunteer on the state youth ministry team, as well as volunteer being the Camping Ministries Coordinator for our church.
I live in Kentucky with my husband, Kevin of 5 years. We have Leon, a dachshund, and Clover an albino rabbit who is currently on loan to my sisters preschool classroom!
I love to read in my spare time. I am a huge fan the Hunger Games trilogy, books and movies. I am on pins and needles until November when the last movie is released. I also enjoy reading other series. I have read the entire Harry Potter Series, and Divergent series. I am currently working on the Maze Runner Series. Book one was great, and I can’t wait to read the rest. I also enjoy running and trying to stay healthy. I have been training with CrossFit for nearly a year, loving getting stronger. I have participated in three 5Ks including the Color Run twice. I love music. I sing and play piano. Some musical influences include John Mayer, Gavin Degraw, Michael Buble, and Adele.
I am in my 4th year of teaching and I am currently a 5th grade reading teacher at GC Burkhead Elementary. I love using technology in my classroom and finding more engaging activities for my students. I find that the more engaging the teaching, the more excited and motivated the students are. I am currently in grad school in hopes that I can teach technology (to students or to other teachers) somewhere down the road in my career. I hope that this semester I learn more information about technology to help me expand my knowledge!
