About Heidi Butkus

Heidi created phonics assessments directly tied to her world renowned HeidiSongs instructional resources. Heidi is a credentialed Reading Specialist with over 25 years experience in the Primary classroom. After years of developing her own curriculum, Heidi's peers urged her to present this material at the California Kindergarten Conference, which generated an overwhelming response to publish her program. She has since grown this basic curriculum into the "HeidiSongs" product line and website, which now includes both music and videos, plus presentations and keynotes nationwide.
