Dove Creek Elementary School Teacher of the Year Heather Bragg gets to bring her lifelong passion for music into the classroom every day.

“For me, it was an easy choice of what I wanted to do,” the music teacher said. “I always loved working with kids, and because I always loved working with music, that’s the only thing I could see myself teaching.” 

Bragg spent her childhood participating in band, chorus and theater, and she had the support of her father, a band director, and her high school choral director. 

“She was so loving and supportive, and I think that made me love it (music) more and want to pursue it after college,” Bragg said.
