Heather Westerfield, one of Pearl High School’s English teachers, has been nominated and selected by the staff of The Pirate Speaks newspaper as the featured teacher for the month of February.

Westerfield graduated from Pearl High School in 1998. She has an Associate of Arts degree from Hinds Community College, a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mississippi College, and a Master of Education degree from Mississippi College. Also, Westerfield has her National Board Certification.

“I chose to work here because of the exceptional education I received here at Perl High. I loved my teachers here, and I could think of no better place to be than here giving back to the school that gave me so much,”  Westerfield stated when asked why she chose to work here at PHS.

If she was not working at PHS, Westerfield stated she would do something in the fitness or travel industry.

Westerfield enjoys working out, listening to music, and watching movies. She also has been married for eleven years to her husband Matt, who works at MS Department of Medicaid, and has a daughter named Laura, who is six years old and is in the first grade at Pearl Lower. Westerfield is also the head of the English Department and has been teaching for fifteen years.

“I still say the students are my favorite part of the job.I love especially when I get to teach younger brothers or sisters of former students or even children for my former classmates. I also love it when my former students come back to teach with me. It makes me proud!” Westerfield stated when asked about a teaching moment that she would like to share.
