Mrs. Heather Vater » Welcome


Hi! My name is Heather Vater and this is my 12th year of teaching. I started my teaching career in Nacogdoches, TX with 1st grade. I taught there for 2 years and then moved to Kingwood and taught 1st grade at Summerwood Elementary in Humble ISD. I have been at Cannan going on 9 years and taught 3rd grade my first year, 2nd grade Dual Language for 3 years, first grade for 3 years and this is my second year in Kindergarten!

I received my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in December of 2005. I’m from Nacogdoches, TX, my parents still live there and I enjoy going back to visit as often as I can!!

I’ve been married to my husband, Dennis, for 8 years and we have 2 girls. Addison is 7 and Avery is 4. I’m totally in love with teaching and can't wait to spend the year learning with your child!!
