Mrs. Heather Carpenter

Hi, My name is Heather Carpenter and I am the K-5 grade Special Education Teacher at Voy Spears Elementary School.  This will be my 19th year teaching Special Education.  

My teaching career began in 1996 at Camdenton R-III School.  I spent two years there teaching 3rd grade Special Education. In 1998 I started working in the Blue Springs School District.  I have taught at John Nowlin Elementary, Sunny Pointe Elementary, and Voy Spears Elementary.  This will be my 11th year at Voy Spears Elementary.

I received my bachelor degree in Elementary Education/Special Education from Southwest Missouri State University (MSU).  In 2002, I received my Master’s degree from Central Missouri State University in Elementary Administration. 

At Voy Spears I am the Spelling Bee and Running Club Sponsor.

 My husband, Rob, and I live in Lee’s Summit with our two children. (Emily 12, Cooper 10) that keep us hopping with school, volleyball, cross country, baseball, and hockey.  As a family we enjoy spending time at the lake, going to sporting events, and being outside.  I can’t forget about our dog, Charlie.  He is a 4 year old yellow lab.  He loves spending time playing fetch, going on walks, and just being lazy.
