  • I was a student at West Elementary back in the 90's. I was in Mrs. Stuttle's second grade class, and Mrs. Lampinen's third grade class. I thoroughly enjoyed school and while most of my teachers influenced me to want to be an educator, Mrs. Lampinen was the most influential and it was after being in her class that I decided I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. I have yet to fulfill that goal, because life happens, but I am finishing up my degree soon, and will possibly get a chance to teach in the near future. I want to say thank you to all of the teachers at West, especially Mrs. Lampinen, for all their hard work with us students and for loving us enough to be a teacher. Thank you!
