Welcome to Mr. Heim's Teacher Page

This is my 6th year teaching at Del Rey. I love teaching the upper elementary grades. My goal is to help students be in charge of their own learning. When I’m not teaching, I’m either spending time with my wife and two daughters (ages 6 and 7), practicing Aikido, or attempting to ride every roller coaster in the continental United States.

Inspired by
Failure is the key to success, each mistake teaches us something. - Morihei Ueshiba

College
I received my Bachelor’s degree from UC San Diego. I earned my teaching credential and Masters degree from the University of Nevada, Reno.

District Tools I Use 

Attendance
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App

Report Cards 
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.

Gradebook
I have not started to use the Aeries Standards-based Gradebook, but will update my Teacher Page when I begin using it.
