I have been teaching at North Lee in Kindergarten for seven years. Teaching Kindergarten was a blessing and I enjoyed every moment! However, a new opportunity has become available to me and I am excited to say I will be moving to the lower building and will be teaching second grade this year. I am very eager to start this new adventure and look forward to seeing some familiar faces and some new ones in my class. I have a passion for teaching and I can't wait to see what wonderful blessings are in store for me and my class this year! I have also taught sixth grade Science as an interim teacher and have one year experience in 3rd grade while completing my masters degree at Lee University.


I was born and raised in Cleveland, Tennessee to loving and supporting parents.  I am the baby of three children. I have one brother and one sister.  I have been married for 17 years to my high school sweet heart Josh West.  We have 2 wonderful children, Kateland and Ethan.  Kateland will be a senior this year! I can't believe she is growing up so fast! She will be attending Bradley Central this year and Ethan will be in  8th grade this year at Ocoee Middle .  I will be spending a lot of time watching volleyball games and wrestling matches this year! I can't wait! I am also a member of Samples Memorial Baptist Church. My family just recently joined and we feel so welcome by everyone! If you do not have a home church and like being around people who love the Lord then you should visit Samples. Some of my hobbies include volleyball, hiking to view beautiful waterfalls, spending time with my family, and looking for fun and different things to do on Pinterest for my house and classroom!
