Heather Fitzpatrick (Ms. Fitz)

  • Ms. Fitz My boys



    Here's a little info about me: I am a Hazelwood School District and University of Missouri-St. Louis alum. I've been teaching Social Studies here at East since 1996 - and I still enjoy it! :-) I'm a mom to four amazing young men: Ethan (22), Gavin (21), Caden (17), and Logan (14). They are by far the four most important people in my life. I'm happy to say that - finally - they all get along really well and are the best of friends. My parents still live in the house where I grew up in Hazelwood, and I've got a younger sister in Tennessee and a younger brother in California. (Like many teachers, I'm an oldest child.)

    When not at school, I love spending time with my family and friends at home, at church, and out and about - especially on the rare occasion when all four of my boys are free to do something at the same time! I don't get to travel much, but if I had my choice, I'd much rather visit somewhere chilly than somewhere warm. I enjoy hiking in our county and state parks, going to the movies, going out to dinner (Faraci's Pizza and just about any Mexican Restaurant are top choices), reading, and volunteering with the elementary-aged youngsters in children's church. 

    This year, I'm teaching AP United States History and AP U.S. Government and Politics. It's always my goal to build a friendly and positive learning environment, engage students' interest, and challenge them to think critically. I love getting to know my students and genuinely hope to sow some good seeds in each of their lives. Once we return to school in person, you'll find me in Room C330. In the meantime, utilize my email or my Google Voice number to contact me. I'd love to hear from you.
