Ms. Herle is so excited to be part of your educational experience here at Heritage Academy. She was born and raised in Lancaster, California which is part of the Mojave Desert in the most north-eastern part of Los Angeles County. The area is known for its poppy reserves, Joshua trees, wind and heat, aerospace, Edwards Airforce base, NASA, Space Shuttle landings, and a lot of filming for Hollywood. She has lived in both Colorado and Utah, but most recently moved from California to Arizona in March of 2020. She lives in the Queen Creek area. She enjoys listening to audio books so the drive to the school is a great opportunity for such things.
She loves math, logic puzzles, scuba diving, swimming, all things crafty, being musical, and animals. She has two small dogs who are her side kicks. They like to be as close to her as possible and are her little shadows. They are brother and sister and will be seven years old mid-October, though they still have the energy of puppies. She also love being an aunt. She has seven of her 24 nieces and nephews who are local to her and she likes to have them over to do crafts and cook for them, one of her other passions. She has another niece coming at the end of October or early November.
Before changing her college major to Mathematics, she was working at a life insurance home office in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she was also attending Latter-day Saints Business College and then Westminster College. She was majoring in Economics. She returned to California at
the end of 2002 and decided to focus on Mathematics. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and her Preliminary Teaching Credential at California State University, Northridge. She earned her Clear Teaching Credential from the University of California, San Diego. She is
looking for a Master’s Degree Program to further her education.
This year starts her ninth year of formal teaching, with over ten years of teaching experience in addition to tutoring for many years. She loves everything that she’s learned about Heritage Academy. She loves helping scholars and finding out how each one learns and what she can do
to help each person be successful in math. She knows it can seem intimidating and daunting, so any time there’s even a moment of frustration or confusion she hopes that you will reach out during class and in tutoring sessions. She’s literally “standing by” to help you.
