Dear Wolf Swamp Road School Families and Caregivers,
My name is Kristen Heath, and I am honored to start this school year as your assistant principal.
It is a privilege to have been given this opportunity, and I am looking forward to working with
Principal Materas to ensure that your children learn in a safe, caring, and respectful
I come to you with sixteen years of teaching experience at the elementary school level, which I
will draw upon to serve the students, teachers, and families of this community. Prior to
teaching, I received my bachelor’s degree from Smith College, and continued my education by
earning a master’s degree from Lesley University. Most recently, I completed an educational
leadership program through Fitchburg State University resulting in an endorsement from the
Collaborative for Educational Services as a school administrator.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a teacher has been the connections I have made
with my students and their families. I am looking forward to creating opportunities that will
foster these connections as I assume this new position at The Wolf Swamp Road School.
When I am not at school, I spend most of my time attending my children’s many sporting
events. In the few minutes that remain after that, I like to garden, read, hunt for sea glass, and
get stains out of baseball pants.
My educational philosophy is straightforward: All students can learn, and it is our job as a
school community to ensure that they do. It is my intention to help Principal Materas facilitate
an environment where all students thrive. I am so excited to get to know each one of you and
to provide your children with the resources and support they need to be successful. I am
grateful to be a part of this community and promise that I will advocate for you and your
children every day.
