I'm Coach Heckathorn. I teach middle school Tech Apps/Teen Leadership and I am the high school Head Baseball coach and assistant football coach. This is my first year at West ISD and excited for the upcoming year. A little bit about me, I've been teaching and coaching for 19 years, my wife Jenny is a teacher at West Elementary and I have a daughter, Sofia, who is a 5th grader and a son, Gehrig, who will be an 8th grader. I graduated in 2001 from Sul Ross State University where I played baseball and graduated with a B.S in Kinesiology, I then attended Lamar University where I earned my M.Ed. in Educational Administration.
