Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Denise Herkimer
My name is Denise Herkimer. I graduated from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan with a major in Elementary Education. I have 3 minors in math, science and integrated creative language arts. Currently, I am the Language Acquisition Specialist at Homestead and Tom Hicks elementary schools in LISD. This is my 19 year in education. I taught in DISD for 6 years and then took some time off to stay home with my boys for 10 years. This will be my 13th year in LISD and my 13th year being a Language Acquisition Specialist. I have two boys that both attended Hebron High School. Nick graduated from Hebron 2018 and is taking college classes and Jonathan is a junior at Hebron. I am married to my college sweetheart and have been married for 23 years. We have 3 very spoiled cats that are our fur babies. Well, that sums up who I am. I love my job, my ESL students, the schools and staff I work with and believe we are all here to make a difference in the lives of children.
