Teacher Cadet


Greetings RHHS Students, Staff, and Community Stakeholders:

My name is Ms. Heyward and I'm the Media Specialist and Teacher Cadet Instructor at RHHS. I'm looking forward to a great year with Positivity, Progress, and Student Success.  I began my career as a Family Service Worker and I also worked as a Social Worker before I began my career in Education.  I earned my undergraduate degree in Social Work and my graduate degree in Education from Cambridge College.  I'm elated to provide my time, resources and instruction to our great students at RHHS.

Thank you for your hard work and may you reach the heights of success!


The primary goal of the Teacher Cadet Program is to encourage academically able students who possess exemplary interpersonal and leadership skills to consider teaching as a career.  An important secondary goal of the program is to provide these talented future community leaders with insights about teachers and schools so that they will become civic advocates of education.
