Welcome back, EDUPRIZE Eagles, to the 2021-2022 school year!

My name is Heather Vehon and this year marks my 20th year in education (8th at EDUPRIZE). I am an Arizona native and I attended Arizona State University for my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, Northern Arizona University where I earned my Master’s Degree in Multi-Cultural Education and I am currently working on a second Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership with Western Governors University. 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 8 years ago. I have loved teaching and being the Dean at EDUPRIZE and I am excited to start this new school year! 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!
