Degrees and Certifications:

Heather Arellano


I am super excited to be in my first year here at New Ellenton Middle School.  I moved to Richmond County in August of 2018 from the Sacramento Valley in California where I had lived since 1987.  I graduated from California State University of Sacramento with a Bachelors in Studio Art.  After serving 5 years in Richmond County as a School teacher I made the move over to Aiken County and I could not be happier.  My husband and I plan to move to South Carolina as soon as possible. 

I have a passion for teaching students the importance of art and how it can help them accomplish higher learning in all categories.
