Heather Pence

   Hello everyone! My name is Heather Pence and I am a 1st grade teacher. This is my ninth year at Springfield Township Elementary School! It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know all the staff, students, families, and community. 
   I am a graduate from Rowan University.  Soon after graduating, I moved to South Carolina and taught for 2 years.  I enjoyed the beach and warm weather, but was ready to come back home to New Jersey.  I began my career here at Springfield as a small group instructor.   I was given the fantastic opportunity of becoming a 1st grade teacher. I served as the school's Reading Specialist.  I look forward to continuing my career here at Springfield as a 1st grade teacher for many years to come! 
   Outside of school, I enjoy going to the beach, skiing, and just being active.  I love staying fit and have fun with Spartan races or other kinds of challenges.  I have a Golden Retriever named Jake that is a huge part of my family.  I love taking him on walks.

    I am easy-going and very passionate about teaching.  Each new year is an exciting endeavor and I'm ready to give my all to this classroom.  I am looking forward to this school year and am eager to meet you!
