Elementary School

Heather Planchon Grade 4 Teacher

Member of the Saint Columbkille community since 2014

My biggest hope for my students is that they develop a love for learning. Kindergarten is a huge year for foundational skills and readiness for future learning. But most importantly, it is a time to make learning fun and exciting and to instill the love of knowledge in children.

Saint Columbkille is a home away from home to me. Coming from small town Connecticut to Boston, Saint Columbkille has been a community that makes me feel like I’m at home in such a big city. I truly feel as if the school community here is like no other. The relationships between families, students, and teachers are unparalleled and the love of the school is so apparent each day.
