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.
