Hello! My name is Cindy West and I welcome you to our class website! This is my fourteenth year teaching. I began my teaching career in Palm Coast, FL. I have taught 1st through 3rd grades. I taught inclusion (students with special needs) for eight of my fourteen years. I moved back to Enterprise in 2008 with my husband Jason. I was the instructional coach at Geneva County Elementary for two years. This is my third year at Samson Elementary and I absolutely love teaching here!
I believe all children can be successful. My mission is to create within my classroom a consistent, positive environment that allows every child to feel safe, loved, accepted, and important. I want my students to feel confident to take risks and achieve their independent goals. One way that I create this setting is by building a "Classroom Community."
When I am not teaching or working in my classroom, I am busy being a wife and mama. I have been married for 20 years to my high school sweetheart and we have two little girls named Emma Grace and Ella Grae. We also have one fur baby, a Yellow Lab named Lola. I enjoy reading books, riding horses, going to the beach, and working out at the gym. I also love frogs!
I look forward to a wonderful and fun year!
