Meet Mrs. Heald

Mrs. Heald

I graduated from Southside High School in 2010. Although I am a huge Alabama fan, I graduated from Auburn University in 2014 with a B.S. in Animal Sciences. During my time as an undergraduate student, I volunteered regularly at AU's Swine Research and Education Center. In 2018, I graduated from Auburn University once again with a M.Ed. in Agriscience Education. My teaching career began in North Carolina where I taught Agricultural Mechanics I and II and served as the lead chapter FFA advisor for two years. I enjoy training CDE teams and having students to compete in those events.

I have been married to my husband, Alex, for six years and am a proud military spouse. Alex serves in the U.S. Army. Together, we have a daughter who is thrilled to be a future Southside Panther. I am excited to help grow the Southside Agriscience program as well as its FFA chapter. This year, my goals are to reach 100% FFA chapter membership, for every agriscience student to create and maintain an active Supervised Agricultural Experience, and for as many students as possible to find which agricultural topics interest them most! Go Panthers!


I am a Level 1 Google Certified Educator, so I try to utilize the Google Suite as much as possible. Programs that you can expect to use in all Agriscience classes include but are not limited to Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Classroom, Google Forms, and Google Sheets.
