About the Teacher

Hello! My name is Jodie Kaye Waldheim, and I'm a second grade teacher at Hernando Hills Elementary School. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from The University of Mississippi (Hotty Toddy!). I have just recently graduated with my Master's Degree in Education through Mississippi College! My hobbies include being outdoors, traveling with my family (WE LOVE DISNEY), exercising, and arts & crafts!

This is my 8th year teaching at HHES, and it is my 11th year as an employee at HHES! I am married to Justin Waldheim. We will be married for 7 years in November! We have a little girl named Charlie Ann, and she will turn 4 in September! Also, we have our sweet furbaby named Jake. He is a 6 year old yellow lab that we love dearly! Justin and I currently reside in Olive Branch. 

I look forward to a great year with you all!
