Kindergarten Mrs. Heather Regnier

Heather Regnier is our 3rd-5th grade Math & Science teacher. She is married to Joe Regnier and has two teenaged children, Josiah and Abby. Heather and her family are very involved in their church, CityLight. Heather holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Counseling from Grace College and has completed additional coursework to earn her teacher’s certificate so that she could do what she loves! She taught at GraceWay several years ago and we are so excited to have her back! In her free time, she loves to read, watch football with her boys, shop with her daughter, and just spend time with her family. Mrs Heather says, “I am looking forward to a great year of learning, fun, and growing in God’s love!”
