Ms. Heather Kirk
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at William Yates Elementary. I cannot wait for us to work together this year. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you this year in 5th grade. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to your family.
My name is Heather Kirk and this is my third year teaching. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg in December of 2015. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration area of Social Studies. I student taught from August to December of 2015 with Ms. Harris (Now Mrs. Bax) at William Yates Elementary School. After graduation I continued to work with the Blue Springs School District at Sunny Pointe Elementary as a long-term substitute and MAP tutor then at Daniel Young Elementary as a long-term substitute then began my first year of teaching here at WYE two years ago. I am so excited to be returning to WYE for my third year of teaching!
I was born and raised in Odessa, MO and I continued to live there with my family until this past summer. I now live in Blue Springs, MO. I have an amazing son named Brayden who attends Paul Kinder Middle School as a 8th grader. We also have a dog named Rocket. In our free time we enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, fishing, hiking and attending Brayden's events.
As an educator, I believe that every student has the ability to learn. Some learn in other ways than their peers but that makes us all unique and special in our own ways. For the success of the students, I will work together with you to provide the best learning environment for your child. I also feel that it is extremely important that we have open and clear lines of communication. I want you to know that it is my goal to provide the maximum support to your student for optimal success in their education and our classroom. I am so excited for our year together--- I know it will be a BLAST with LOTS of FUN and LEARNING!
