Principal Mrs. Heather Buckley

I am so honored to be a part of the Gator family! I know that at Groves, students' social and academic growth are of the upmost importance and am excited to be a part of that community.  

I began my career at Wylie ISD as a paraprofessional in 2004. After graduating from Texas A&M Commerce, I taught kindergarten and 3rd grade. For 4 years, I served as the Advanced Academics and GT specialist for Wylie ISD before returning to the campus as the assistant Principal at Birmingham for three years.

My husband, Jeff, and I both grew up here and are Wylie ISD graduates! We have been married since 2005 and are blessed with two children, Jordan and Alli.

I am looking forward to an amazing school year with your kiddos!
