IH EduHERO: Meet Heather Rise

Kirk Koennecke and Heather Rise

This month we kick off a new school year of celebrating our world-class faculty and staff with our IH EduHERO recognition! We travel to Indian Hill Elementary School, where we celebrate one of our outstanding educators, Heather Rise, as our September IH EduHERO! Nominated under our #IHPromise strategic focus area Learners as the Whole Child, Ms. Rise shows her dedication to the #IHPromise each day she comes to work!

From the nomination form:
“Ms. Rise goes above and beyond to create a classroom community where all students feel comfortable, welcomed, and included. She takes the time to get to know her students on an individual level so that she can incorporate their interests into her lessons. She is a master at running morning meeting and incorporating Responsive Classroom strategies in her practice. Our students are so lucky to have Ms. Rise!”

We appreciate you, Ms. Rise, and congratulate you on this much-deserved EduHERO award!

In service to our children,

Kirk Koennecke
Indian Hill School District
