Grade 1

Mrs. Amy Heim

My name is Amy Heim, and I am a New Orleans native.  I attended St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Elementary School and St. Mary’s Dominican High School.  I am married to Mark Heim, and we have three sons.  One of our children attends St. Dominic, and two are at McGill.  I earned my B.A. degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the University of New Orleans.  I earned my M.Ed. degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Alabama.  The most important lesson I want to teach my students is that they have important things to say, and God has given them unique and special talents to share with the world.
