About Me

cc readers social profile

Hi there! I’m Laura Heinen. 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’m a third grade ELA teacher at heart, but am currently taking some time out of the classroom, which gives me more time to create materials to help you! I have nine years of experience teaching – seven of them in third grade ELA.

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