Heather Huewe

AB Speech Communication, MAT Early Childhood Education

Heather Huewe is thrilled to begin her fifth year teaching at WUNS. After staying home for several years to raise four daughters, Heather eagerly returned to the classroom and found WUNS to be a wonderful fit. Heather was drawn to WUNS for its warm, family environment, its collegiality, its professionalism, and the opportunity to work not only with young children but also with young adults from Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to having her daughters, Heather taught first, sixth, and eighth grade over the course of twelve years at MICDS, and developed a love for each age group. She teams with Suzy Frillman in the morning Big Bears and with Marsha Graeber in the afternoon Panda Bears.

Heather earned her BA in Speech and Communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (go Tarheels!) and an MAT in Early Childhood Education from Emory University.  

A devoted runner for her entire adult life, she will begin coaching her thirteenth season of Girls on the Run this fall, and has completed several marathons for charity. Heather is most proud of coordinating the annual Race for Refugees, which benefits the International Institute of St. Louis.  This venture combines her love of running with her belief in giving back to our shared community. In her free time Heather loves to stay active and get outside with her kind husband – and fellow educator – Patrick, their four unique daughters Rosie, Grace, Anna, and Mary Catherine, and crazy pup Charlie. Together they like to walk to their friendly Olivette neighborhood Starbucks, ride bikes to the bookstore (more coffee!), go to the zoo, play tennis and soccer, and of course run. Heather also loves to read, bake, keep up with current events, and stay connected with friends, family, and neighbors (a.k.a. talk…just ask her family!).
