About Me
Greetings! I am so thrilled for you and your student to be a part of my school family this year! 

My name is Heather Ben-Judah! I have nearly ten years with North Kitsap School District, ranging from paraeducator to secretary and office manager! This is my 2nd full year in the classroom as a first grade teacher. I'm honored to be a part of the amazing Vinland first grade team, and to have your student in my class! 

The best way to reach me in via email. I check it a few times throughout the day and will respond as quickly as possible. My email is hben-judah@nkschools.org. Additionally, I will send out occasional emails and newsletters when we have exciting happenings or events coming up. 

My teaching philosophy is to create a safe nurturing environment for children, and teach them using many different strategies and approaches. Not everyone learns the same, so I like to teach the material using many methods. My first priority is making sure each student feels safe and supported in our classroom. From there, we will learn and grow our brains together. I am passionate about children and learning, and refer to our classroom often as our first grade family. I'm "all in" when it comes to your child!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns! Thank you so much for your support.
