This will be my second year teaching K-12 art here at Oasis Academy, and I’m very excited to introduce your children to all the great artists and techniques we will be working on this year! I have a Bachelor of Art in Art from the University of Nevada Reno and have taught and worked in schools for 7 years. In my free time I like to read, travel, and go on outdoor adventures with my family.
I’ve been so lucky to be the music teacher at Oasis since its inception. I have been teaching voice and music classes to children for over 20 years and I feel so fortunate to spend my days immersed in two of my greatest loves-music and kids! When I am not singing and dancing, I love spending time with my husband Brad and my two boys (who I sometimes make sing and dance with me!). I love to explore nature (especially if waterfalls are involved), watch anything on BBC and cook. I almost forgot to say eat!! My very favorite pastime is eating!

My name is Heather Wiessmer. I am the Drama teacher for kindergarten and first grade as well as lunch aid at Oasis Academy.
I graduated high school in Newtown, CT then followed my heart to Southern California where I went to Mt. San Jacinto College and met my now husband of 10 years, Tony Wiessmer. We together have two young girls Kadence (7 years old) and Kenslee (5 years old) both attending Oasis Academy.
We moved to Fallon in 2010 to further our dream of living in a small town and having a small farm. We now have 3 horses, 10 goats, 2 dogs, 2 pigs and a bunch of chickens.
I enjoy camping, riding my horses, eating sushi, anything outdoors and all the family time I can get in with our crazy schedule.
As a Fallon native, I have always had a love for Nevada Agriculture! Growing up I was very active in 4-H and FFA where I developed a passion for agriculture education. So teaching Ag and being the FFA Adviser is an awesome opportunity that I truly enjoy. I attended high school right here in Churchill County and earned my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science with minors in Ag Business and Business from Brigham Young University-Idaho. After college I worked as a Livestock Nutrition Consultant and Territory Manager for Cargill Animal Nutrition before moving back to the home town I love. My greatest joy is spending time with my little girl. I also enjoy riding my horses, crafts (even though I never seem to finish them), reading, and spending time with my family.
I am a wife, mother of four, college student, coding teacher, and lacrosse coach. I love working at Oasis Academy! Currently, I’m going to the University of Phoenix to get my BA in Elementary Education. When I finish up my BA, my goal is to get my Masters in Special Education.
