March 11, 2014 - Dr. Heather Fisher has been nominated to serve as a project fellow at Harvard University for the Project Zero Summer Institute. The nomination means that she is being considered for a position to lead study group sessions and provide relevant assistance for those who participate in the Harvard Project Zero Conference. Being selected for such a position would also mean that she would be considered a faculty member at Harvard University.
Fisher is someone who has deep roots at Union University School of Education, as she has earned multiple degrees from the University. She earned an Ed.D. in 2004, an Ed.S. in 2003, and an M.Ed. in 2000.
Fisher is honored to be nominated as a project fellow. She states, “I am so thankful for this incredible opportunity. I look forward to learning, growing, and sharing as an educator.”
Currently, Fisher serves as a Master Teacher at Dogwood Elementary in Germantown, Tennessee, where she teaches 5th grade Social Studies and Language Arts.
In 2013, Fisher was named as K-4 Teacher of the Year for Shelby County Schools. She is appreciative of the support she has received from her parents, colleagues and mentors during her teaching career. She also credits the preparation she received as a Union University student.
“My graduate studies at Union opened my mind to new ways of teaching and relevant research, in a collegial atmosphere,” Fisher said. “I must say that I cherished those Saturday classes because I got to exchange ideas with so many educators. I learned so much from this experience.”
