• Meet Miss Ortiz


    Welcome to Room 8!

    My name is Heather Ortiz and I am so excited to by your child's 1st grade teacher.  I try to keep my classroom very structured but still very fun and inviting to all of the kids.  We share our room all year, so I strive to make our room a safe and comfortable place for all of the kids to come to.


    This is my fifth year working in the Derry Township School District.  I grew up in Harrisburg, and I attended the Central Dauphin School District.  I then attended Harrisburg Area Community College and got my bachelor's degree from Millersville University.  I am now working on my Master's degree at Millersville.  



    I enjoy reading, spending time with my families and friends, coloring, and playing with my pets.  I have one dog Molly and one cat Ollie.  I love to go to the beach, Disney World, and pretty much anywhere else.  I enjoy traveling and seeing new places.
