Ms. Heidi Mackey

Hello, I’m Heidi Mackey and I am thrilled to be joining a dedicated team of educators at High Ridge Elementary. I grew up in St. Louis and attended the University of Kansas to obtain my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. While teaching various grade levels for 12 years in Kansas, Iowa and western Missouri, I earned my Ed Specialist Degree in Administration from Northwest Missouri State University. I began my administrative career in 2002 on a military base. I have also been a school leader in urban and rural schools. I have 

returned to my hometown and am eager to be a part of the Northwest School District.

I believe every child possesses gifts that make them unique contributing members of a school and classroom. Finding these talents and helping children to be confident in their abilities is the key to a successful school experience. High Ridge is a community of learners and leaders!

As an educator with sixteen years experience, I have taught both first and fourth grade all at High Ridge Elementary.  Some of my most rewarding memories as an educator are when my students graduate high school and stop by to reminisce about their school experiences.  I have my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Missouri State University, a Master’s in Administration from Southwest Baptist University and a Specialist degree from Missouri Baptist University. When I am not at work, you may see me around town shuttling my kids to sporting events.  I am really excited to serve and educate the staff and students at High Ridge Elementary as the Principal Intern this year.  I look forward to continuing to make High Ridge Elementary a great place to learn.
