Mrs. Marie Heckard

My name is Marie Heckard. I am the ESOL teacher at York Road. I LOVE helping students and families who speak another language thrive as learners!

I have an elementary education degree from Clemson as well as a Master's Degree in reading from Winthrop. I am also a National Board certified teacher and am Reading Recovery trained. This will be my 21st year teaching.

I am married to Richard and am the proud mother of two boys, ages 10 and 12. We love traveling, especially to study history. My favorite book is Wonder. There is no greater joy than getting children excited about reading!!!
