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.  Two of our children attend St. Dominic, and one is 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.

I attended St. Dominic Catholic School and returned here in 1995 to teach first grade. I feel so blessed to teach fgraders who come to school every day excited and eager to learn. I graduated from the University of South Alabama with a degree in Elementary Education. I currently serve on the school leadership team and PTO board. I have been married for 29 years and have two sons who are graduates of St. Dominic Catholic School.
