Meet Mrs. Makowski

Hello! My name is Heather Beveridge Makowski and I am excited to be the Kindergarten teacher at CJDS!  I am originally from Scotland, where I studied Early Childhood education specializing children 0-5 years old.  I worked in a nursery school for three years, before returning to University to gain my Primary (elementary) Bachelor’s degree.  Once I graduated, I worked in a school teaching 4th grade in a small fishing village in Scotland.  I was then given the opportunity to teach in a British School in Dubai, where I taught 2nd grade for two years, before I moved North Carolina.  Once I moved to NC I worked in Waxhaw, Union County, where I taught Kindergarten for three years and 1st grade for two.

Outside of my love for teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Christopher, and our two dogs Belle and Kingsley.  We enjoy talking them on walks and working on wood working projects together.   I have been learning aerial silks for the last two years, which I love, as it is a challenge, and have started learning to sew.  I am looking forward to getting to know all the wonderful families here at CJDS and know we are all going to have a wonderful year!
