Heidi Lang

ECE-8 Dean of Culture

I have a degree in Psychology and Elementary Curriculum and instruction from CU Boulder and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of New England. I was an elementary school teacher for 7 years and have now been a Dean for 6 years. I love what I do and take Social-Emotional Learning, Restorative Practices, Regulation Strategies, and Problem-Solving Strategies very seriously. Outside of my profession, I love traveling, photography, and spending time with my family, friends, and my silly dog Moose.
