    Mrs. West ~ Art Education

    I have been teaching Art for six years.   I started my career in Perryville MD teaching Drawing and Painting as well as Foundation of Art at the High School level.  I came back to PA and taught at Mill Road and Bainbridge for one year and I am very excited to see new and old faces at Bear Creek in the fall!



    I was born in....
    Lancaster, Pennsylvania


    My family.....
    I have been married to my husband, Travis for 4 years and have a stepson, Gavin who will be starting High School this year.  We have a French Mastiff named Marla who we adore.


    I went to school/college....
    Elizabethtown Middle and High School and went to Millersville University for my Bachelors in Art Education and I am currently working on my masters in Art Ed at Millersville.

    When I was in elementary school....
    Art was my favorite subject!

    If I were not a teacher....
    I would have been a sculptor.


    I became a teacher ....  because art is everywhere and I am passionate about advocating art enthusiasm in schools in order to provide students and staff with many creative ways to problem solve and use artistic expression to foster deeper learning and meaning of the world around us.

    My favorite teacher was....
    Mr. Mack.  He taught History at Elizabethtown High School and had a strategy for every type of learning in his classroom.

    I am interested in ....
    Knitting and Felting (any fiber art).  I enjoy working with fine metals as well. 
    I enjoy running and cross fit, but I am not a huge sports fanatic. 
    My favorite movie is Captain Corelli's Mandolin.


    I love to vacation....
    In Europe.

    My favorite food....
     Is cheese!

    I would most like to meet....
