Tricia Heien

Special Education


My name is Tricia Heien. I am the Junior High/High School Special Education Teacher. I am starting my 4th year in Gettysburg and have enjoyed getting to know the students, staff and community.

In our classroom, I work closely with the students to help them learn the skills and resources to become independent, successful individuals. However, I truly believe it takes a team (parent, teacher, student, administration, outside resources, etc.) working together to help each student reach their goals and independence.

My classroom expectations are:

  • Be respectful
  • Have a positive attitude
  • Be prepared
  • Ask lots of questions
  • Always work hard
  • Never give up!

  • Please contact me with any questions you may have!
