Welcome to Woodgate! My name is Heather Metzgar and I am the Assistant Principal at Woodgate Intermediate! I am so excited about the start of a new school year! We aim for your child to have a positive school experience in which they will grow academically and socially. Our goal is to do our best each day to successfully prepare them for their ongoing educational journey!
I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's degree in Agriculture Science. After teaching for a few years, I continued my education at the University of Houston where I earned my Master's of Education in Counseling and later received my Principal's certification through the Region 12 Education Service Center in Waco.
This school year will be my 17th year in education. I began my teaching career at the high school in which I graduated, Katy High School. I taught in the Katy ISD for eight years before becoming a school counselor for three. Our family moved to Waco in 2007. For the last three years I worked as the Coordinator for Career & Technical Education for MISD. Last spring I began as Assistant Principal here at Woodgate!
I am married to Jarrod Metzgar who works as a Vice President at the Extraco Events Center. We have two boys: Braedon (7th grade at MMS) and Bryson (3rd grade at SBE). Our family loves to spend time in the outdoors: hunting, fishing, sports, water & snow skiing! Additionally, I love to travel and read!
