Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Heather Cavinder - Administrative Assistant
I became a member of the Washington school family in 2010 when my oldest son started Kindergarten. I started out volunteering in my kids' classrooms and helping out where I could. During a school activity, I was approached by another mom who was a lunchroom supervisor and she asked if I would like a job in the lunchroom. Since both my boys were at school during the day, it was the perfect position. I worked in the lunchroom for 4 years and then a full-time position in the office became available. I knew Washington was the place I wanted to be full-time. This year I am starting my 9th year at Washington Elementary. The students, families, and staff make this school a great place to work! Washington is not only a great school, it is a great community as well.
I have 2 boys, Ryan (16) and Aiden (13). Ryan attends Normal Community and Aiden attends Evans Jr High. I have been married to my husband Tim for 22 years this year. I also have 2 dogs, Luna and Dexter. They are both Vizslas.
I have many hobbies, but crafting and sketching people's faces are probably 2 of my favorites. The thing I love to do most is spend time with my family.
