My name is Heather Wise and I am the gifted and talented teacher at University Park Elementary! I was brought on to the teaching staff in the summer of 2012 after teaching third grade
in Aurora Public Schools for 7 1/2 years.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from CU Boulder (Go Buffs!) and a Master of Education from Regis University. I obtained my Gifted Education Endorsement shortly upon arriving
at UPark in the Fall of 2012.
I've lived in Denver for over 20 years and love everything it has to offer - beautiful weather, tons of outdoor activities, great restaurants, the mountains and, did I mention the beautiful weather?!
I am full time at UPark
