My name is Heather Snyder and this will be my first year at Tonganoxie Elementary School. I graduated from Emporia State University in 2001 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I began my teaching career in Reading, KS, where I taught Special Education for six years. My husband then landed a job in Wichita, KS so we moved to a town right outside of Wichita, where I taught for one year at Derby Middle School. 

At that time we had a one year old at home, our son, Kyler, and a daughter due in January so I decided to become a stay at home mom. 

After being a stay at home mom for 10 years, I was given the chance to return to teaching. The past two years I spent at Basehor Linwood Middle School as an Interrelated teacher. When the chance opened up to teach at Tonganoxie Elementary I jumped on it! I am excited for a new school year!

My son, Kyler, is entering into 6th grade at Basehor Linwood Middle School and my daughter, Ella, will be in 4th grade at Glenwood Ridge Elementary in Basehor. We also have two crazy dogs at home. Our pug, Belle, is 15 and a half years old and we have a rescue dog named, Doby Won Kanobi, that is crazy and energetic and oh so loved! 

In my spare time I enjoy running, crossfit, attending Royals games, reading, and cheering on my children at their many sporting events!

I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
