Heather Ayres was elected to the Creighton Governing Board in 2020. She is an Arizona native, living in Mesa and Phoenix her whole life. She and her wife, Wendy, fell in love with the Creighton area and decided to buy a house here. Heather has been in education for over 20 years. She worked as a paraprofessional in Mesa for 3 years before earning her Bachelor’s degree from ASU in 2000, with a degree in Elementary Education. She worked in Mesa for half a year as a permanent sub, then got a job in the Isaac School District where she still teaches 5th grade today. She has served on many district committees, and has served as President of the Isaac District Education Association for the last 4 years. She loves working together with the district to make sure it is the best place for students to learn.
Heather is looking forward to learning more about the Creighton Community and working with students, parents, staff, and the community to make sure it reaches its full potential. She is excited to serve in another district at a different capacity that brings about positive changes and celebrates the phenomenal things already happening in Creighton.
