My name is Heather Heintz and I am so excited to be a part of the Legacy Academy team and community!
A little bit about me… I moved to Castle Rock in 2013 from the North Denver Metro area. I have a wonderful husband and we have been married for 19 years. We have 2 great children, Autumn, who is thirteen and in 8th grade and Braden, who is 10 and in 5th grade. My children keep me busy on my free time with soccer and softball. I also love skiing, traveling, hiking, live music, and reading.
I have a BA in Theater Arts from the University of Northern Colorado and a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Regis University. Teaching is a second career for me and has become a love and a passion. Seeing students grow, experience success, and learn to maneuver through challenges are some of the wonderful gifts of teaching. In my almost 5 years of teaching I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades. I have loved all the grade levels I have taught, but my years at Legacy Academy in 4th grade have been my favorite so far!

Activities & Hobbies: I love reading, snow and water skiing, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, live music, and hula hooping! :)
