Ms. Heba Khourshid
Hello! My name is Ms. Khourshid, and I have been with District 89 since 2009. I started as a student teacher and aide at Briar Glen, taught fourth grade at Westfield for 10 years, and this year I will be teaching fifth grade at Arbor View.
I graduated from Roosevelt University in Schaumburg where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education with an endorsement in middle school. I went back to school and earned my master’s degree from Olivet. Then back to school again to earn my ELL endorsement. I am very passionate and dedicated to being a teacher. I adore my students, and will do whatever it takes to make sure they are happy and successful in my classroom.
I love spending time with my beautiful, loud, and loving family. I love to read, write, shop, travel and play with my two nieces and three nephews. They are a handful, but I love being an aunt!
I love going outside, especially in the summer - it’s my favorite season. I love most sports, and I’m a huge Chicago fan (Go Cubs)! My family and I are in a fantasy football league, but I haven’t won yet, so wish me luck!
I’m so excited you’re in my class and I get to learn all about you! I know that when we work together we are going to have an AMAZING year! Please remember, I am here for you, to support and guide you through it all. I hope you are ready to work hard, make mistakes, learn, and have fun!
