Hello friends! My name is Heidi Brosseau. They call me ‘Ms. Heidi’ at school! I am so excited to be your classroom assistant this year. Some folks already know me from Knecht’s Nurseries and Landscaping, where I’ve been working with plants and people for more then twenty years. I enjoy gardening, camping, all kinds of arts and crafts, and reading and telling stories! I’m really looking forward to contributing to all the learning and fun that make Open Door Preschool such a great place to grow!
