Mrs. Heather Drye
I am so excited to be starting my Eighth year teaching at Northside High School! I moved to Jacksonville in the summer of 2019 after having gotten married and us wanting to be near family. Before I arrived at Northside High School I was a high school teacher in South Carolina for three years before moving to the mountains of North Carolina and then teaching middle school there for three years.
I love to read, crochet, hike, and teach! I love encouraging students to become their own advocate and to continue to grow individually.
I was raised in a small town in South Carolina. I graduated from high school in 2009 and then attended college for four years. After college I stayed in the area of Western South Carolina. After wanting a change I moved to Western NC Mountains and lived there. I am happy to be settling down some now and working on building new relationships within the community.
I have three dogs, Arya, Max, and Cleo. They are all very different and keep me on my toes!
