Marci-Hoellwarth

Heritage Academy introduces Mrs. Marci Hoellwarth to the Maricopa campus as our 6th Grade Science teacher!

Mrs. Hoellwarth cannot remember a time in her life when she did not want to be a teacher!  Luckily, she followed her dream and did exactly that!  She grew up in California, and received her BA degree at San Francisco State University.  She continued on to pursue her Teaching Certificate at California State University, Chico.

Mrs. Hoellwarth has been teaching for 16 years, and is thrilled to be a teacher at Heritage Academy!  Her teaching career includes 1st grade, 2nd grade, 5th grade and 6-9th grades!  She loves Science, and believes it is an incredibly exciting subject to teach!

We are so excited to have Mrs. Marci Hoellwarth as part of our family of Heroes!
