Meet the Board of Directors: Heather Ippolito

We want you to get to know our Board of Directors better, since they are all here to serve you! Let’s meet our Vice President for Communications Heather Ippolito. 

Heather Ippolito has been involved for 20 years in PTA. Her favorite thing about PTA is her love of seeing the faces of children and families together during PTA events. “There is nothing better than seeing families having a wonderful time together!”

Heather is a teacher by trade who has been on a very extended leave while raising her daughter. She plans to return to substitute teaching this year while she works on obtaining her administrative credential. 

Heather is married to her high school sweetheart, Ron, who is a junior high school teacher. They have a musical theater-loving, clarinet-playing daughter named Libi who is in 7th grade. Their dog, Bella, enjoys barking at the neighbors and chasing bunnies out of the yard. 

Heather loves to travel with her family. They have visited all 1,111 California historical landmarks — so she has probably visited your neck of the woods during her travels. When the family is not traveling, you will find them using their annual pass at Disneyland. Her favorite quote is, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”  by Walt Disney. In her free time, Heather scrapbooks, collects Dopey memorabilia from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and spends time with her many friends.

If she could give one piece of advice, it would be to breathe! “In PTA things often don’t go as planned, so you need to be able to take a deep breath and go with Plan B.”
