Mrs. Love


      Welcome to Third Grade! My name is Heather Love and I am so excited to be your child’s teacher. This is my third year at Hillsdale Elementary School and my 27th year in education. I have been married to my husband for 22 years and we have a son named Brady who will be a sophmore at Rocky High School. I am an army brat so I spent most of my life traveling the world living in many places such as Munich and Stuttgart Germany, Hawaii, Texas, California, and Montana. I love the outdoors and my profession. 

       I have lived in Meridian for 18 years and have taught a range of grade levels and subject areas including, 6-8th grade math and Literacy intervention, 6th grade Family and Consumer Science, first grade, and second grade. I left the classroom for a year in 2010 to work for the State Department of Education as the State Reading Coordinator. 

        My goal is to help your child reach his or her potential academically and socially. Each student is unique in their learning styles and interests, so it is extremely important to me that every student grows academically and socially in ways that support their strengths and interest areas.  I plan to use various methods to measure your child’s progress toward the 3rd grade priority standards and will communicate their progress with you. Finally, I will teach your child the power of GRIT and having a growth mindset as they are persevering through new and challenging material.
