Welcome! My name is Heather Mullins.This is my second year teaching at Newport Grammar School. I attended NGS as a student and it feels like home! I obtained my Bachelor's degree from Tusculum University in Elementary Education K-5. I am currently working toward my Masters degree from Cumberland University. Teaching is my passion and what I enjoy most. I am looking forward to meeting my 2020-2021 first grade class!
