Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Nakasha Kirkland


My name is Mrs. Kirkland and I am passionate about closing the educational achievement gap.

In 2002, I enrolled in a Teacher Alternative Preparation Program to become a secondary math teacher. In the years that followed, I spent most of my time enrolled in educational courses, analyzing student work, working closely with colleagues, and partnering with parents.

In 2012, I became a Math Coach. In that position, I was able to further my knowledge of instructional delivery through partnership and collaboration with teachers of mathematics.

In 2020, I became the Instructional Coach at Metz.  I realize today that as a result of those previous collaborations, I have deepened my own knowledge about teaching and learning beyond the mathematics content.

I am excited to continue my professional learning with the staff at Metz Middle School.
