Principal Heather Woodward

  Hello! My name is Heather Woodward and I am the Principal at Kenton Elementary. I have been the proud principal at Kenton Elementary for the past seven school years. Before coming to Kenton, I was the Assistant Principal at Aurora West College Preparatory Academy, a District Literacy Coach, a Literacy Teacher Leader and I taught 1st, 4th and 5th grades, all in APS. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, Olivia (5.5 years) and Lauren (2.5 years). We enjoy traveling; including visiting Wisconsin where our extended families live. I also enjoy hiking, reading and running. A few of the things I am most excited about for the 2017-18 school year are meeting all of our new students and their families and reconnecting with all of our continuing Kenton students and families. I am also excited to provide support and grow alongside our amazing Kenton staff. My job is to accelerate the learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by creating an aligned and coherent instructional system in which every decision I make is in the best interest of students. My community needs me to do my job.
