Heidi Cousley

2nd Grade Lead Teacher

I am thrilled to be teaching at CWC Mar Vista!

This will be my sixth year teaching.  I taught fourth grade for three years and prior to that, I was teaching in the United Arab Emirates as a first grade teacher.  My teaching experiences have shaped me into an educator who values building relationships with her students, inspiring student creativity and critical thinking, and fostering a classroom focused on kindness. 

I just moved from Raleigh, North Carolina but I was born and raised just north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  I attended Penn State Behrend for my undergraduate and went to the University of Pittsburgh for my MAT in Elementary Education.  My husband, Adam, and I have lived in Raleigh for the last 7 years.  We are eager to start the next chapter in our lives.  I am so grateful our west coast adventure led me to CWC Mar Vista.

When I am not teaching, you can find me traveling or watching sports with my husband, learning a new exercise, chopping vegetables and meal prepping, spreading kindness, or planning a themed event for family and friends!

Looking forward to meeting the CWC Mar Vista community!
