Team Wildcat

Emily Bauman, Staff Reporter

The teaching staff at here at West is a team. Each day, teachers come into school ready to face the task of educating the Wildcat youth. Working together to teach students, staff members talk, plan and attack classroom challenges each day. So who are these team players? Each week, I’ll ask a series of questions to get to know two different staff members, one male and one female. Let’s get to know the teachers and see just who is apart of the wildcat teaching staff.
