“I’m just really excited to be a part of the Notre Dame community,” said Mrs. Amy Heyroth, who succeeded Mrs. Maureen Campbell in Student Services.

She previously served as a teacher at St. Thomas More in Green Bay’s east side.

“St. Thomas More was very small, and obviously the kids are a lot older (at Notre Dame),” said Mrs. Heyroth.

Mrs. Heyroth said, “I was looking forward to working with high school students after working with elementary students for many years. Notre Dame has a really great atmosphere.”

Mrs. Heyroth knew that she wanted to work in education since her senior year of high school.

“Being a teacher you have to be very organized and have good time management, so I guess I feel working over here now in Student Services you have to be organized, manage time, and manage people,” Mrs. Heyroth explained.

In her free time, Mrs. Heyroth likes to attend her children’s activities. Her son, Aaron, is in 5th grade and plays baseball and basketball. Her daughter, Abby, is a member of the freshman class at Notre Dame and plays volleyball.

Mrs. Heyroth and her husband, Matt, recently celebrated their 20-year wedding anniversary during a trip to the Dominican Republic.

She also enjoys “walking, hanging out with family and friends, and tailgating at Packer games.”

Mrs. Heyroth, who is originally from Wittenberg, Wisconsin, attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where she studied elementary education with a minor in health education.

At UWSP she played softball, the sport she now coaches at Notre Dame.

Mrs. Heyroth hopes for many years at Notre Dame. Would she be interested in returning to the classroom at her new school?

“Possibly, maybe in the future,” she said.

TAKE TWO (by Ian Spaulding):  Mrs. Heyroth New in Student Services

New this year to the Notre Dame Academy family is Mrs. Amy Heyroth, who grew up in a small town an hour west of Green Bay called Wittenberg, Wisconsin.

Mrs. Heyroth has taken over the duties of Mrs. Maureen Campbell, who retired last May from her position in Student Services.

Her senior year of high school is when Mrs. Heyroth really found out what she wanted to do in life, and that was to be a teacher or work in a school.

She went on to college in UW-Stevens Point where she played softball all four years. From there she graduated with a major in elementary education and a minor in health.

She then married her husband Matt and had two children: Aaron, a 5th grader at St. Bernard’s, and Abby, a Notre Dame freshman.

She and her husband just celebrated 20 years of marriage and took a trip to the Dominican Republic.

She enjoys walking, hanging out with friends and family and going to her kids’ sporting events. And, of course, tailgating at Packer games.

The last school where she taught was St. Thomas More, a very small school on Green Bay’s east side where she was a health and elementary teacher for many years.

She said the transition to NDA was easy because “it’s still a school atmosphere. It takes time management and organization to be in a school whether one is an office worker or a teacher.”

Her motivation to come to school everyday is the interaction with students. Mrs. Heyroth appreciates the unexpected nature of a school atmosphere.

“It’s something different every day,” she said.  She has been a Notre Dame softball coach since 2011 and is very excited to be even more a part of the Notre Dame family.

In 10 years she sees herself still at Notre Dame. Maybe being a teacher….

But for now she is great where she is, saying she “loves the students, loves the staff” and “is having a great time figuring out the school.”
