Hey there!  My name is Heather Van Alphen.  I am in the MST elementary education program at Plattsburgh State University.  I will graduate in 2020.


Outside of my classes I am a teaching assistant at Champlain Valley Educational Services.  Ever since I was a little girl I have always wanted to help and teach others.  I have worked with children and individuals with developmental disabilities for over 20 years.


I am a mother to two adolescent boys who are my world.  We lost their father/ my husband in 2016 after a long battle with brain tumors.  My boys and I love to explore the Adirondack mountains, go boating on the lake, and ski and snowmobile during the winters.  I enjoy taking photos of nature, sunrises/sunsets, and the beauty of the world around us. I love to travel and would love to one day visit every state in the US.  I enjoy all sports, watching as well as playing.
