Vice President of Product Management
As the Vice President of Product Management, Heather is responsible for defining, planning, and ensuring the successful delivery and execution of our digital products at Teaching Strategies. In collaboration with our company leadership, Heather champions forward innovative and market-leading products that help drive our mission, and support and inspire early childhood educators everywhere.
Having been inspired by an incredible third-grade teacher, Heather made a commitment to working in the field of education, which she has done since high school. She began as an assistant preschool teacher and later acquired a Pennsylvania certification in English Language Arts and Literature.
After leaving the traditional classroom setting, Heather discovered a love for educational technology. Before joining Teaching Strategies, she worked in a variety of EdTech roles including creating instructional design, co-authoring custom textbooks, leading nationwide teacher trainings, developing curriculum, launching a mobile reading curriculum app, and consulting for EdTech start-ups.
Heather is driven to bring the teacher’s voice into technology development and is especially proud to be working at Teaching Strategies—as she has personally experienced the life-changing benefits of publicly-funded, high-quality early childhood education. Heather holds a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, English from Clarion University of Pennsylvania.
