Mrs. Heather Bui
Hi! My name is Heather Bui, and I am excited to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher this year!
I am a three-time graduate and "triple dawg" from the University of Georgia. I earned my Bachelor's Degree (2009) and Master's Degree (2012) in Early Childhood Education. I earned my Educational Specialist Degree (2016) in Language and Literacy Education with an emphasis in Reading Education, Children's Literature, Writing, and Language Arts for Pre-K through 5th grade. During my three degree programs, I also took extra coursework to earn endorsements in the following: Early Childhood Mathematics, Reading Education, ESOL (English as a Second Language), and Gifted Education.
After graduating with my Bachelor's Degree in May 2009, I began my teaching career in Georgia! I taught for 7 years in my hometown of Winder, Georgia in the Barrow County School System. I taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade during that time. After moving to Alabama in May 2016, I began teaching Kindergarten at Columbia Elementary! This will be my 4th year in Kindergarten at CES, and I am beginning my 11th year as a teacher!
I grew up in Winder, Georgia with my parents, older sister, and younger brother. In May 2016, I moved to the North Alabama area when my husband, Evan, was promoted and transferred with his job. In January, our first child, Lincoln, was born, and we love watching him learn and grow! We are also constantly learning new things and growing as new parents! Evan and I live in Madison with Lincoln and our dog, Lexi.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends- I go home to Georgia to visit often. I also love playing with Lincoln, traveling- especially cruises, shopping, and attending and watching UGA football games! Go Dawgs!
