Hello! My name is Amanda Heinzen. My husband
and I grew up in Stockton, California, then later moved to Rexburg,
Idaho, where I got my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I
delight in a great many things that either involve creating (writing,
knitting, crocheting, cooking) or experiencing the creations of others
(reading, scouring Netflix, touring Aperture Science, eating)! The
coolest thing I've done to date is help raise a puppy with the Guide
Dogs for the Blind program. Though our pup was dropped for medical
reasons (we got to keep her!) we hope to raise another puppy in the
future. What I love most about my job at Franklin Discovery is the
ability to do what I've always struggled with making time for in my
classroom: working one-on-one with the students. I am thrilled to work
with our amazing staff to build the best experience for these children.
The greatest adventure is what lies ahead!
