My name is Mrs. West, and I am SO excited to be your teacher and to be working with you!
I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA, so it is no doubt that I'm a Pittsburgh sports fan- Steelers, Penguins, Pirates & Spikes! I moved to State College to attend Penn State University, where I receieved my Undergraduate Degree in Early Adolescent Childhood Education and a minor in Special Education. Therefore, I'm a HUGE Penn State fan! WE ARE..... Penn State... and Radio Park!
I'm also a huge fan of dogs. I have a black lab named Harle, and she's my big baby! I love going on walks with her and playing "Hide-n-Seek" with her too. She always ends up finding me. When I'm not playing with Harle, I'm ususally crafting, decorating, watching a good movie, enjoying time with my family, or hanging around outside in my kayak or on my hammock.
If you didn't already know, I'm also one of Mickey and Minnie Mouse's biggest fans! I love anything Disney, and that's why you'll see a lot of Disney things in our classroom. Some of my favorite Disney characters are Buzz Lightyear, Maximus and Pascal from Tangled, and Princess Jasmine and Ariel.
Now that you know a little bit more about me, I can't wait to learn more about you!!! Welcome to our classroom, or what I like to call, our "home away from home!" I cannot wait to see what's in store for us!
