Dr. Rob Buffone    
Heritage Elementary Principal      

My name is Rob Buffone and I have been in elementary education for the past 24 years.   I graduated from Clarion University with a degree in Elementary Education. In the following years I went on to earn a Masters Degree in Teaching & Curriculum and a Technology Integration Specialist Certification from Penn State.  I received my K-12 Principal's Certification at Temple University in 2010. In June of 2017 I completed my Doctorate Degree in Education Leadership through the University of Pittsburgh.  

As your principal I promise to continuously ask the question "What is best for students?" which will in turn guide the decisions we make at our school. Spending the past 24 years in education, my philosophy is based on the belief that all students can learn, and that it is every staff member's responsibility to create a positive, inviting, safe school climate. I am anxious to work with everyone in the community and to support a student-centered environment as we start this school year together. Don't hesitate to call or email me with any questions!
