Karen Heckman

Teacher, Grade 8

As a Texas native recently transplanted to Denver, Karen is very excited to explore all that Colorado living offers.  She loves teaching science at Cherry Hills Christian School and believes that students learn best by doing “hands on” science.  This gives them important skills for their success in both high school and college by promoting critical thinking and problem solving to help students become autonomous thinkers.  

Before joining the staff at CHCS, Karen was not only an educator, but also a Physician Assistant practicing “real world” science for over 20 years.  She obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree in Zoology at Texas Tech University and subsequently her Masters of Science Degree at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.  When not in the classroom, you will most likely find her outside with her family and 2 dogs exploring God’s beautiful creation.  

Favorite Verse:

Always be joyful.  Never stop praying.  Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.  

I Thessalonians 5:16-18 NLT
