Above is the favorite quote of Heritage fifth-grade teacher, Jenae Standingwater, who has been nominated as the 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year! She has taught for 19 years. 10 years spent in Plano, Texas where she was also nominated as Teacher of the Year at Armstrong Middle School. She has three sons that are all students at Edmond North. Ryan is a senior and she has twin boys, Rhett & Ross, that are freshmen. Mrs. Standingwater is the reading cadre for Heritage. She’s also an active member of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Edmond. She and her husband have been married for 23 years.

“I love teaching. My favorite book is ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go’ by Dr. Seuss because I am a lifetime learner and love learning new ideas and I love the opportunities Heritage has made possible for me. My kids inspire me every day.”
