Reading University

Meet the Professors

2020 Reading University Professors 

Two administrators manage the programming at Reading University: Helen Neufeld, M.Ed. Admin and Dana Heidemann, M.Ed. Leadership.  Ms. Neufeld, retired from classroom teaching after a full and rewarding career,  has been involved with the program almost since its inception. Helen's belief that learning is much better when it is enjoyed rather than endured is one of the pillars of the Reading U experience.  Ms. Heidemann is currently Principal of St. Mary School in Beaverlodge. Dana's  ongoing action research at the elementary school level helps inform many successful RU activities.
