Miss Penny Heipel

Third Grade Teacher

  • Bachelor of Arts in History with minors in Business and Classical Education (Hillsdale College)

Miss Heipel grew up in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, but also considers the Lake Superior bay town of Ashland, Wisconsin to be home. She graduated from Hillsdale College with a major in History and minors in Business and Classical Education. Throughout her time as a student, Miss Heipel grew to particularly love medieval history, classical literature, and educational philosophy. The investment of both her family and professors played integral roles in developing her sincere love for learning. This, along with her belief that classical education is an important and worthy pursuit, motivated her deep desire to teach and share this love with others. Miss Heipel looks forward to daily embarking on the pursuit of truth and beauty together with her third-graders.
