Hi there! My name is Heather Weir and I am excited to start my fourth year as the special education teacher in Barrett’s integrated VPI (Virginia Preschool Initiative) classroom for four year olds. I love teaching our youngest learners! I have been working on the special education team at Barrett since 2012. In 2015 I was honored to be named Barrett’s Teacher of the Year. I truly love coming to school and seeing my students’ faces light up when they learn something new!
I am lucky to also be a Barrett parent. I have a daughter in 11th grade and a son in 7th grade who were both Barrett Tigers.
Outside of school our family stays busy with sports, family hiking trips, and working in the yard! We love cheering for the North Carolina Tar Heels during football and especially basketball season! I am currently working on a second Masters in Early Childhood Special Education, but when I’m not working on assignments for grad school you will find me on my back deck reading or just enjoying the quiet!
