Mrs. Heidi Rothery

As a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno and a lifelong traveler throughout the Truckee and Lake Tahoe area, Mrs. Rothery is thrilled to call Truckee her home. Her teaching career began well over a decade ago when she started as a bilingual preschool teacher and propelled through all elementary grade levels. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature with a minor in writing from UNR, she attended California State University Sacramento where she earned a post-baccalaureate elementary education teaching credential and a supplemental credential to teach middle school English. Teaching at the middle school level has become her passion, and she has spent the past many years teaching an array of subjects including English, Spanish, and Journalism. In addition to teaching, Mrs. Rothery has coached a variety of sports and has been a freelance writer for various newspapers and magazines. When she is not teaching, she spends her time with her three most favorite people on the planet, her husband, daughter, and son. They can be found traveling across countries, mountain biking trails, paddle-boarding, and skiing and snowboarding as many mountains as they can. Their black lab, Brutus, warms their hearts. Soccer occupies a lot of their time. When they aren't watching their kids play matches on local pitches, they can be found watching the professionals. She is thrilled to join the incredible staff and teach at ACMS!
