Jacqueline Heller

Jacqueline Heller is a literacy teacher and coach at Mason Crest Elementary School in Annandale, Virginia, the first national model professional learning community school to receive the DuFour Award. As a former classroom teacher, mentor resource teacher, and reading recovery teacher, she has extensive experience collaborating around data-driven instruction to ensure all students learn at high levels.

Jacqueline uses her professional development to build capacity and collective efficacy with teams to improve core instruction, so that fewer students need targeted interventions. Much of her 20-year career has been spent working with, and learning from, diverse language learners and students living in poverty in Title I schools.

Jacqueline has been part of the leadership team at two national model professional learning community schools in Fairfax County, Virginia. She has been published in the Journal of Literacy Research and has presented at the local, state, and international level.

Jacqueline received a bachelor of science degree from the University of Virginia, a master of education degree from George Mason University, and is currently pursuing a PhD in education with an emphasis in literacy and organizational communication.
