Teacher Honored as Teacher of the Year for DJAES!

CONGRATULATIONS TO SUSAN HEPNER:  DJAES Teacher of the Year for 2014

Please join me in congratulating second grade teacher Susan Hepner who is DJAES’ Teacher of the Year for 2013- 2014.  Susan is in her 17th year of teaching.  She has taught second grade for the last four years at DJAES.  Prior to that, she taught first grade and spent one year in kindergarten at Reilly Elementary School in Mission Viejo. 

Mrs. Hepner considers herself a lifelong learner and loves to light that ‘love of learning’ spark in her students.  A sense of community and support are essential elements in her life, both with her colleagues and in her classroom. 

On a personal note, Mrs. Hepner lives in Mission Viejo with her husband and two wonderful puppies, Avalon and Scooter.  Her daughter Greta and her husband Andrew live in Los Angeles.  Greta works in finance for Verizon and Andrew is finishing up at Art Center in Pasadena.  Susan’s son Lee is an attorney in San Francisco and Susan’s parents are moving out this summer from Michigan.  She is so excited to have the family together.

 

Susan was honored on Tuesday, April 22nd at a ceremony at Soka University.
