Mrs. Heather McCabe


Welcome to our website! I am thrilled to have the honor of teaching  my 10th year at Don Gill Elementary. I have spent most of my career in second grade and did have the privilege of teaching 3rd grade one of my years as an elementary teacher to learn and understand the curriculum one grade above my current grade level. This was a great experience so I could properly prepare my students for the next grade as well as the PSSAs.

I am currently teaching third grade for the second time in my career. Third grade is a year of discovery, growth, and achievement as your child learns independence and assumes more responsibility in the classroom. The environment in our room is one that is safe, welcoming, and nurturing. I believe in having a hands-on approach to teaching where students are learning by doing. I feel they will achieve long term mastery in a meaningful way by creating their own learning experiences.

My goal this year is to make sure all students feel confident that they can succeed and are excited about learning in our classroom. I look forward to watching my students reach for the stars and be the best that they can be!
