Ms. Julie Heitz
Hello! I'm Julie Heitz, the Ankeny and Centennial High School ELP (extended learning program) teacher. My goal is to assist in providing educational programming that maximizes the unique cognitive abilties and enhances personal growth of identified students. I work collaboratively with classroom teachers to increase differentiated opportunities for the gifted and talented students in the classroom. I also have information on contests and competitions and PSEO classes for college credit.
I was a high school math teacher for 13 years before taking on the AELP role at Ankeny High School in 2013. This year I will be splitting my time between the two high schools. Mondays and Tuesday I will be at ACH, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at AHS, and Fridays will be determined by school and student need. Working with kids is my passion and I strive every day to build meaningful relationships and help students see the connections between school and life.
If you have any questions about the supports or learning opportunities I can offer your child, please don't hesitate to contact me:
