Elementary Principal

Welcome back, EDUPRIZE Eagles, to the 2019-2020 school year!  My name is Heather Vehon and this year marks my 18th year in education (6th at EDUPRIZE).  I am an Arizona native and attended both Arizona State University for my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, as well as Northern Arizona University where I earned my Master’s Degree in Multi-Cultural Education.  I spent my first teaching years on the Gila River Reservation where I taught 3rd and 4th grades and I also had the opportunity to coach teachers in the area of mathematics instruction. I went on to become an Educational Consultant where I traveled to many schools to provide professional development and school improvement services.  I came back to teaching when my son, Julian, started kindergarten here at EDUPRIZE 6 years ago. I have loved teaching at EDUPRIZE and I am excited to serve the school in a new capacity as Dean of Students. I believe that behavior skills, just like academic skills, must be taught, and practiced regularly in order for students to be successful in the classroom.  I am looking forward to supporting the incredible teachers, loving families, and outstanding students at EDUPRIZE as we work together to make this year the best school year yet!
