This 2014-2015 school year is witness to a multitude of new faculty members joining the Heritage High School community, but one face stands out from the rest.
Ms. Deborah Grace is this new face. She has taken up the important role of supporting Heritage students as a part-time school psychologist. Grace also meets with the students personally to help them achieve in academics.
While she is new to the school, Grace is no stranger to the Littleton Public Schools district.
“I did my practicum at Ames and Field Elementary and this is my community. I’ve always wanted to work in this school district,” says Grace.
What sealed the deal on Heritage was its sense of community, and both parents and students do their part to contribute to this.
“My daughter went to the Junior Bells camp and the parents and girls were all very nice and made it feel like a community,” says Grace.
Grace is now a part of the Heritage community and enriches its members with her support and desire to help.
“It’s a new opportunity for Heritage. Creating a team is a cool opportunity because there was always only one psychologist, and now we can share opportunities to work with kids,” says Ms. Carla Cde-Baca, another school psychologist at Heritage.by
