Welcome to my 4th grade ELA class. I am so glad you are here!  This is my 21st year teaching, and I am honored to have been a part in shaping the learning of so many young lives for several years.  First of all once you are my student, you are always one my "my kids". 

 

Let me tell you a little about me:  I am married to my best friend, Jerry G. West.  We are blessed with two sons, Jesse whom lives in Louisville now, and Zylor whom is a 7th grader this year. As well, we have two huge house cats who seem to rule, Tigger and Theodore "Teddy", that you will hear lots of comical stories about this year. You will see how fun writing can be after hearing about our own everyday family adventures.

 

I am looking forward to another SUPER  4th GRADE YEAR with you at WC-MES!  Let's remember to READ, READ, READ and WRITE  fun stories too. I can't wait to hear all about you and your family!  :)


 

                                     
                                       A Teacher's Creed                                                                                                                                                                                

I believe I have been called by God to teach.

I believe in children...young and old...black and white...rich and poor....each in need of learning.

I believe in blackboards, chalk dust, textbooks, and computers for each has a part in imparting knowledge.

I believe the love I give to my students will someday be reflected in their lives.

I believe the gift of teaching is not measured simply by marks, enrollment, or the end of the school year.

It is in the witness I give and the fullness of the life lived by those I teach.

I believe I have the power to lead those in need of learning to the threshold of their own minds.

I believe in my giftedness to use each of the tools available no matter how new or old..for the light of knowledge in the eyes of another is my goal.

I believe teaching is more than tests, diplomas, paperwork, and fundraising.

It is the values I breathe daily into another...slowly.

It is in the faith I share in Jesus...ever changing and growing...never ending.

I believe my success today goes unnoticed...until those i teach and touch can stand alone and say "in my life I have learned..."

I believe if I have taught and touched one person...in God's name...I have used my gift to me justly..and can humbly say...

I believe in teaching....

I AM A TEACHER!!
