Mrs. Heather Tucker

Hello!  My name is Heather Tucker and I have spent most of my career in government finance, most recently as the Budget Director for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).  My financial career started in New York City where I worked for the Office of Management and Budget under Mayor Bloomberg and since then, I have had the opportunity to work for various city and state governments since 2006.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Clemson University and a Masters in Public Policy from Georgia State.  

My husband, Tyler, is a graduate of Irmo High and we have been married since 2009.  We have lived in District Five since we got married and moved to Chapin in 2017. We have three boys (Jack, Will and Lee) currently in D5 schools that keep us very busy.  We love all things Clemson and enjoy playing sports, being on the water and just hanging out together.

I am honored to have the opportunity to teach something that I love - Financial Literacy.  I feel that it is our duty to prepare the next generation to be good citizens and responsible stewards of money.  I hope that my role here at Chapin Middle can play a small role in growing your child.  I look forward to working with you and your children this year.
