Amy Belz ready to lead Immaculate Heart of Mary School

After serving eight years as a teacher and assistant principal at Sacred Heart School in Glyndon, Amy Belz is excited to take on a new role as principal of Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Baynesville.

“I’m very eager to continue the established tradition of Christ-centered education,” said Ms. Belz, who has also taught at Mount St. Joseph High School in Irvington, Immaculate Conception School in Towson and the College of Notre Dame of Maryland in Baltimore.

“We have a very seasoned faculty and parents who are very committed to this place,” she said. “There’s lots of tradition here. It’s a wonderfully established school.”

Ms. Belz plans to enhance the use of curriculum mapping at Immaculate Heart of Mary and look for new ways of incorporating technology into the curriculum of the 500-student school.

“Curriculum mapping is a good way of keeping current,” she said.

Ms. Belz grew up in Wilmington, Del., and earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland and a master’s degree in education with a specialization in administration and supervision from Loyola College in Maryland, Baltimore. She is a parishioner of Sacred Heart, Glyndon.
