Jessica Heintz - Third Grade
Jessica has been living in Dallas for almost three years now. She loves traveling and spending quality time with friends and family. This is her first year teaching at St. Bernard, but already she feels so blessed to be teaching here. Before St. Bernard, Jessica was teaching 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. She has a degree from Oklahoma State University and added certifications in English as a Second Language and Special Education.
"St Bernard’s community is unlike any other. I have already seen the outpouring of parent volunteers and students' eagerness to learn. I’m very enthusiastic about working here with the new administration and working in a Christ-led environment."
What is your dream vacation, and with whom would you take it?
My dream vacation right now is to visit Israel. I would love to see places mentioned in the Bible in real life! I would take my mom with me. She has great faith and it is something that we would always remember together.
What is the most interesting place you have travelled?
The most interesting place I have traveled is Italy. It is my favorite place to visit. I love the weather, scenery, and food! I love to travel abroad when I can.
What is your favorite book or movie and why?
My favorite book is Wuthering Heights. I remember reading it in high school and falling in love with books after. Now, I read all the time and it is one of my favorite hobbies!
