Elementary School

Heather Planchon Grade 4 Teacher

Member of the Saint Columbkille community since 2013

My biggest hope is that my students develop a love for and ownership over their learning. Fourth grade is a big year for independence and responsibility, so I hope they leave this year feeling ready for their next challenge and excited about all that is to come.

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.
