Mrs. Heather Watkins

Hello Families!

I am so excited to be working as a third grade teacher at Oconee County Elementary School.   This is my 21st year in education. I have experience in teaching first, second, and third grades.  I have also worked as a K-5 instructional coach and spent the last three years as an Assistant Principal at an elementary school in Gwinnett County.

I am married to Michael and we have two children, Sydney (21) and Riley (19) who are both attending college.  I can't forget the most important part of our family, Maxwell, our 4 year old Labradoodle.  

I have a passion for teaching and learning.  My classroom is my second home so anyone who joins it becomes part of my family.  I look forward to teachiing and loving your children this school year!
