Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Natalia Heckman. I am an Instructional Coach for English and Social Studies Departments. This is my first year at New Caney High School and my 11th year in education. In the past, I taught English I-IV and ESOL classes; I also taught English at San Jacinto Community College. I hold a bachelor’s degree in literature from the University of Houston at Clear Lake and a master’s degree in school administration from Lamar University.
With a background in technical writing and translating, I discovered a passion for education later in life. Twenty years ago, I came to the US from Russia, planning to work for Houston Space Center, but I found myself teaching at-risk students on a Title I campus. Helping students to reach their academic potential has been the most rewarding experience. Now, I work with teachers, but I carry in my heart the warmth of gratitude from my former students. I am very excited and honored to join New Caney High School Instructional Leadership team! I look forward to new beginnings!
