Meet Mr. H

Meet Mr. Hegnauer

Mr. Hegnauer is excited to begin his twentieth year at Cherry Tree. This will be his tenth year teaching 4th grade. He also spent ten years teaching first through third grade.  He was born in Akron, Ohio and raised in Canton/Massillon, Ohio.  He earned his BA degree in Elementary Education from Anderson University and his Master’s Degree with a focus on science education and leadership at Miami (of Ohio) University.  When he is not teaching 4th graders he spends his summer months and weekends teaching in a graduate program for Miami University and training elementary science teachers for the Indiana Science Initiative.  He resides in Noblesville with his wife Jennelle, their 11-year-old son Josiah (who is a proud 5th grader here at Cherry Tree in Mrs. Luna's class), their soon-to-be 10-year-old son Jadon (who spends his days in Miss Crawford's 4th grade class), and their adorable old beagle Si.   In his spare time (ha, ha) Jeff enjoys reading, music, camping, mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, basketball, soccer, baseball, and just spending time with his family and friends. He also, of course, devotes a bit of time to cheering on his beloved Cleveland and Ohio State sports dynasties.
