Mr. Kerwin Blau Learn more
Hi my name is Kerwin Blau, and I have been involved with music one way or another all my life. I have been a student of music for over 40 years and I have taught music and band for over 20 years. I was born and raised here in Mesa. I graduated from Gilbert High School and attended MCC and received my degree from ASU. My wife and I have been married for over 25 years and we have four children. Music has been such an important part of my life, and I have always wanted to be the kind of music teacher for my kids that I wish I would have had when I was a child. I have been fortunate to see music and the arts flourish here in the valley and I am excited to be a part of that. I also enjoy Scouting, reading, cooking, outdoor activities and being with my family. I am asked quite frequently what my favorite type of music is, and in all honesty I have to say it’s usually the type that I am listening to, or performing at the moment. I like to have fun and play games and sports of all kinds.
Mr. Bob Brown Schedule an Appointment HERE
Hello Heritage Academy scholars and families.
My name is Bob Brown. I am honored to introduce myself as your College Relations Manager for the Mesa campus. I am truly excited for this opportunity to help guide you on your journey with both high school and college planning. I came to Heritage Academy after spending 12 years at Rio Salado College as a Site Coordinator and Student Success Coach in Rio’s Early College/Dual Enrollment department. While at Rio, I served thousands of students/parents with their early college opportunities which included: Dual Enrollment, ACE (Achieving a College Education), planning for Associate Degrees, placement testing, admissions and enrollment, and tuition assistance to name just a few. I am proud of the work I did at Rio Salado College and am excited to bring that knowledge and expertise to Heritage Academy. Prior to working at Rio Salado College, I worked in several different management capacities in the business sector. While I am proud of the accomplishments I made during this time, nothing gave me greater satisfaction than working with students/parents during my time at Rio Salado College.
Other things I enjoy are spending quality time with my wife of 29 years, both my daughters, and my two wonderful grandsons. I enjoy working in my backyard and on all the honey-dos my wife gives me, camping, golfing, softball, and just about anything outdoors. Appointments are available by phone, in-person, or virtually (see link above) I truly look forward to working with the Heritage Academy family.
Mr. Jeff Burrell Learn more
My name is Jeff Burrell. I have been a teacher for many years; math, science, critical thinking, piano, problem-solving and some other odds and ends. I have lived in Mesa, Arizona almost my entire life. I was born here, went to school here, got married here, went to school some more, got a job here, and am still in school here (just on a different side of the desk, now). My wife and I have been married for over 30 years. We have three children and love to spend time with them. I earned an Associate’s Degree from Mesa Community College in General Studies. I went on to finish a Bachelor’s Degree at Arizona State University in Secondary Education, with a minor/double-major in Mathematics. I am highly qualified to teach Mathematics and Physics in high school and college. I earned my Master’s Degree in Teaching and Learning (with an emphasis in Technology Integration) from Nova Southeastern University. When I am not teaching, I love to go on walks with my wife, take pictures of the sky, play games with my family, play and listen to music, make things with my LEGO collection, and solve puzzles. I enjoy teaching because I get to help others discover truth. I am grateful to have played a a part in training heroes at Heritage Academy since 1996.
