Mrs. Heather L. Soto
My career began over twenty years ago as a high school English teacher in New York. During this time, I taught the College Credit Program through Long Island University and Syracuse University Project Advance classes. For the two years prior to moving to Texas, I was an adjunct instructor at Ft. Polk, Louisiana's on-site campus of Central Texas College. After my husband’s retirement from twenty years of service in the Army, I was blessed enough to earn a teaching position at UMHB.
I earned my BA from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, S.D. in Secondary Education/English and a minor in Sociology; completed my MA in English at The University of South Dakota in Vermillion, S.D.; and, finally, earned my a Post-Masters Certificate in Educational Leadership from The State University of New York at Stony Brook, Stony Brook, N.Y.
My husband, Eric (UMHB Class of 2010), and I are native New Yorkers but now reside in Georgetown. Our family is Bella (UMHB Class of 2021), Diego, Leo and our two dogs, Eli and Lucy.
My time at UMHB has enabled me to see the standard of excellence set forth by the faculty and staff and student body. I am truly blessed and excited to a member of the UMHB family.
