Mr. Heath Cockerham

Coach "Heath" Cockerham

  • It's going to be another exciting year for Coach Cockerham as he will "split" his schedule between Amherst Middle School and Amherst High School!
  • At Amherst Middle, Coach "C" will be teaching two courses of World History, Part One (Periods 1 and 2).
  • At Amherst High,  Coach "C" will be teaching three courses of World History, Part Two (Periolds 5, 6, and 7).
  • I am excited about the challenges and opportunities that this split schedule will create and I hope that this website will help allievate some of the confusion in regards to classroom expectations, assignments, and general announcements.
