Mrs. Vanessa High


Hi there! This is my seventh year at Hightower Elementary and there is no place else I'd rather be.  I love our school and the Hightower community! 

I consider myself a life-long learner and passionately believe in the power of education.  My goal is to instill a love of learning in my students. 

I love to travel, eat, and listen to music.  When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my family, playing with my pups, caring for my plants, or getting lost in a book.

This year is going to be special, and I look forward to sharing it with you!
