Elementary School

Heather Klavetter - Associate Principal

Welcome to Gage Elementary!  

My name is Heather Klavetter, and I am honored to be the Associate Principal at Gage this year.

I started my career in education 22 years ago, and through the years I've taught both elementary and middle school students in my home state of South Dakota and in both southwestern and southeastern Minnesota. Most recently, I was an Associate Principal at Bamber Valley Elementary in Rochester for two years.  Prior to that, I was an instructional coach at Jefferson Elementary School, and I was a 6th grade teacher at Kellogg Middle School. Every position has blessed me with valuable learning experiences that I bring with me to my new position at Gage. 

Outside of school, I'm "on the run" with my husband Eric and our three energetic children. Our twin boys, Eli and Parker, are 8th graders who are active in school and extracurricular activities, and their social calendar is much busier than mine. Our daughter Kate is a 5th grader who loves school, sports, and her cat Ruby.  

I'm so excited to be a Gage Gator, and I look forward to getting to know the students, families, and staff that make this school such a special place. It’s going to be a fantastic school year!
