Dear Parents/Guardians,

             Welcome back to school!  I am so excited about this school year.  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Heather Fuentes and I have been teaching in the Santee School District for 9 years.  I have taught multiple grades in my career so far, but I am very happy teaching 2nd grade!

             I live in Santee with my husband and two kids. My son, AJ, is almost five and my daughter, Mia, is three years old. Needless to say, I am a busy woman! I am very close with my family and love spending time with them.

             I feel so proud to be working in the same school district as I attended as a child. I went to Hillcreek from EAK-8th grade and graduated from Santana High School.  Santee is a wonderful place to learn and teach.

             I believe that a home-school connection is very important for the student’s success. Please know you can reach me by phone and/or email with any questions or concerns at any time. I have included some paperwork for you to look over and return.  Please take the time to fill out the parent questionnaire and return it as soon as possible. The school also has many different papers that need to be read and signed.  Please do this a quickly as you can.

             I look forward to meeting everyone at Back to School Night on September 11th. Here’s to the start of a wonderful school year!


    Thank you,
