Heikkila recalls what she's learned, taught for 29 years
Marie Heikkila will retire at the end of this school year after 29 years in the Hudson School District. And while a lot has changed in every discipline during that time, the changes in her field, world studies, have probably been the most dramatic.
Heikkila has taught sixth-grade world studies for most of her career. She joined the middle school staff when the school was still housed where Willow River Elementary is today.
