Mrs. Heather Morrissette

1st Grade Teacher


Mrs. Morrissette holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Reading and ESL. She had taught kindergarten and 1st grade in the Omaha Public School system for 13 years before coming to Legacy in 2022.

I chose Legacy because I love the idea of a school setting where one size does not fit all. I love teaching and watching the growth students show when learning and growing. The atmosphere Legacy offers will ensure all of my students’ needs will be met with success.
