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!
