My name is Heidi Billington. I am currently an elementary school teacher seeking to pursue a full time career in physical education. I earned my Bachelor's of Science Degree with an emphasis in Elementary Education from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2008. Following graduation, I began teaching third grade at a local elementary school. In 2011 I completed a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University. Later that year, my husband and I went to work as missionaries teaching English in Thailand. Upon our return in 2012, I began teaching 5th grade and in 2013 transitioned to 4th grade. Throughout my personal and professional career, I have continually developed a love for health and fitness. I find myself working as a personal trainer and swim coach on a regular basis. Currently, I am looking to merge two of my greatest passions in life: education and health and fitness. Following completion of a Master's Degree in Kinesiology from Fresno Pacific University, I hope to transition into the field of physical education within my local school district, begin a swim school, and start a personal training company.
