Mrs. Lisa West
Welcome to Third Grade at East Elementary! I am looking forward to having your child in my classroom this year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
I am a graduate of Drury University with a bachelor’s degree in General Education with an emphasis in Elementary Education. I spent four years as a Learning Disability Paraprofessional, five years as a Third Grade Teacher, one year as a fourth grade teacher, and a year and a half as a Substitute Teacher for grades K-12.
I have been married to the love of my life, Jesse, for 18 years. Who recently retired from the United States Army. During our time together we have been stationed at Fort Leonard Wood (ten years), Fort Campbell, KY (three years) and Joint Base Lewis McCord, WA (three years). Washington is also my hometown, Gig Harbor to be exact. After retirement, we moved to my husband’s hometown of Washburn, IL. But soon we both discovered that we missed being around the military. So here we are, back at Fort Leonard Wood and calling it home once again=)
We have two boys; Jake, who is 13 years old and Cody, who is 7 years old. We also have two black labs, Tara and Jackson. We are a huge hockey family, that is divided (Go Preds! Go Hawks!). Most of our weekends from August to March are spent at the ice rink watching our boys play hockey (Go Spirits!). We also love a good road trip. By far my favorite family road trip has to be when we drove Route 66 from Ponitiac, IL to Santa Monica, CA. Then, we headed up the 101 to Washington State.
