About Me

Hello from Houston, TX! My name is Laura Heinen and I am excited to work for you! I am passionate about teaching students to love reading and writing and am devoted to creating valuable resources to help you cultivate critical readers (and thinkers) in your classroom. I love collaborating with other teachers to develop engaging resources and lessons, so feel free to reach out to me. I’d love to hear from you!

I have nine years of experience as a teacher – seven  in third grade ELA. I am currently taking some time out of the classroom which gives me more time to create materials to help you!

When I’m not creating teaching materials, I enjoy reading, running, and traveling with my husband. Come find me on Instagram and Facebook! @cultivatingcriticalreaders
