“Heather Kirkley is the new instructional coach at WMS and is knocking it out of the park. She is helping teachers create awesome content online and in person. She assists small groups of students during specific classes and is so invested in helping us all improve. “

– Emily Smith


I graduated from Eastern Illinois University and began teaching Family and Consumer Science at Triad High School for eight years. This is my first year as an instructional coach and I believe this is what I was meant to do!  My husband, two daughters and  I moved to Westfield from Illinois in 2020.


I love coaching because I get to see students in all different classes be successful in both their educational and personal lives! I enjoy co-teaching and collaborating with some of the finest teachers who are dedicated to guiding WMS students to be life learners!
