Hi! My Name is Heather Novak. I grew up on a farm five minutes away from Melville, Saskatchewan. I come from a very large family of 12! Yes, 12! I have 5 sisters and 6 brothers, soon to be 4 brother-in-laws and 3 sister-in-laws. Also, I will soon be an aunt for the 9th time! Having a big family makes family so important to me and having so many nephews and nieces are what began my passion for children and teaching. I am currently in my fourth and last year of the Elementary Education program at the University of Regina. This is a great accomplishment for me as I am the first out of my family to graduate from university.
With School and work, there is not a lot of spare time for myself. However, when I do get some spare time I like to surf the internet, relax in front of the television and watch a really good movie. As well, I like to read a good book, listen to music and sometimes draw. During the warmer months, I like to take scenic walks and enjoy nature. I like to go camping with the family at least once a year during the summer months.
