Mrs. Heather Cortez
Hello, my name is Heather Cortez. I graduated from Oxford High School c/o '92. In 1993 I married Chris Cortez. We have 3 wonderful children and 3 even more wonderful grandchildren.
I was a dental hygienist for over 17 years. The time came for me to leave dentistry and I knew I wanted to be a teacher. Teachers can change the lives of children. I had some outstanding teachers that encouraged me along the way. I want to give back the encouragement and love that my teachers gave me.
In 2015 I received a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from Western Governors University. I enjoy teaching 7th and 8th-grade math here at Oxford Middle School. I believe every child can experience success in learning and understand the importance of perseverance.
