Hi! My name is Eileen Heck and I am an early childhood special education teacher for the Roundy Elementary Preschool Program where I work with three and four year olds. I recently began my 19th year here at Columbus Community Schools all of which have been teaching preschool. I am also an adjunct instructor at Iowa Wesleyan University in Mt. Pleasant where I teach early childhood education classes to college students one evening a week. As you can tell, early childhood is my passion! I graduated from Iowa Wesleyan University in 1996 with a BA degree in Elementary Education (K-6) and an endorsement in Early Childhood. Later, I completed my Early Childhood Special Education endorsement at the University of Northern Iowa. In 2009, I received my MA degree from the University of Northern Iowa in Early Childhood. On a personal note, I grew up in West Liberty but have lived the past fourteen years here in Columbus Jct. with my husband, Todd, and our four sons.
