She truly cares about her students. She is a tough grader but does everything for a reason and is very fair. I have immense respect for her and consider her to be one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Her class is truly inspiring and I wouldn't have been able to do as well as I did without her.

Heckmann is amazing. She is incredibly passionate in what she teaches and there is really never a dull moment in this class. It's my favorite class this year. She does grade very mercilessly, so make sure you follow directions and answer every single part of the question before turning something in.

Best and my favorite teacher I had in high school because she cares so much about what she does. Not only that, but she puts in an unending effort to help her students succeed in the class. She's one of the few teachers that I've ever had that combined great teaching skills with awesome personality. Ms. Heckmann always also uses a variety of teaching techniques to make sure that anyone can learn in her class. She's fair, honest, outgoing, and an all-around great teacher.
