In Heart of a Teacher, with the key witness against him suddenly and mysteriously nowhere to be found, Henry Gowen (Martin Cummins) reassumes his position as mayor of Hope Valley and, without warning, summarily fires Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) as the school’s teacher, citing a hidden scandal from her past as the cause.
With the support of nearly the entire town – especially the children – and an impassioned Abigail (Lori Loughlin) at her side, Elizabeth travels to Cape Fullerton in hopes of resolving the false allegations against her. Certain that big money is at play in Gowen’s favorable dealings with the railroad, Bill (Jack Wagner) lays out a plan to find out what underhanded business is going on between Gowen and Ray Wyatt (Jeremy Guilbaut).
Following days of instruction under Mr. Stoneman (Adam Greydon Reid), the school’s strict and demanding new teacher, Cody (Carter Ryan Evancic) takes a stand in defense of Emily (Gracyn Shinyei) and leads the students in a walkout. When Jack (Daniel Lissing) delivers the Tate brothers to Mountie Headquarters, he receives bad news about a young Mountie he mentored, which weighs heavily on him.
