Hello! My name is Heather Raap and I teach 3rd Grade at Murphy Elementary. This is my sixth year teaching in the district. At Murphy, I have taught third grade for four years and fifth grade for one year. I also have taught Kindergarten for summer school in Lake Zurich for a couple of years.
I graduated from Illinois State University in 2013. I majored in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish. In 2016, I completed my Masters in Education with English as a Second Language through Dominican University.
I was born in 29 Palms, California. I am the oldest of four and the only girl! I have three younger brothers, Kevin Jr., Justin, and Aaron. I have lived in many different places because my dad was in the United States Marine Corps. I've lived in California, Hawaii, North Carolina, and Illinois. Moving around a lot meant that I went to many (ELEVEN) different schools. When I am not teaching, I enjoy going to the movies, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
