Mrs. Michelle Heckman

My name is Michelle Heckman and I am happy to be the Life Skills and Autistic Support Teacher here at Muhlenberg Elementary Center.  I have been working here at MEC for 13 years and I still learn something new everyday!
I am originally from New York, right outside of New York City and found my way to Pennsylvania when I went to Albright College.  After graduating with a degree in Child and Family Studies I taught pre-school and worked one on one with special needs children before pursuing my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Special Education at Columbia University back in New York!  When I graduated, I returned to Pennsylvania and have been teaching children with special needs ever since! I even decided to pursue a second Masters of Ed degree and graduated from Cabrini College in Spring 2011.
In my free time, I love to organize anything, read, and have run many 5ks, some half marathons and a marathon in Disney World! I am the proud mommy to my 6 and 1/2 year old twin boys whom are the light of my life. I currently reside right outside of Reading with my husband and my boys
