Mrs. Jamie West
This past year I have earned the reward of Harnett County's Teacher of the Year. With that comes some exciting opportunities to grow as an educator and help my students the best I can. I am so excited to continue to bring energy and passion to our school. I am finnishing my 13th year of teaching. I have taught at Western Harnett High School, Highland Middle School, Long Hill Elementary School and Lillington Shawtown Elementary School. I attended Methodist University and played soccer during my time there. While at Western I was the soccer coach and Assistant Athletic Director.
My Family is very important to me. My husband and I have a daughter who is full of energy and loves to laugh just like her mom!
I have a very simple teaching philosophy. All students can learn. All students can do THEIR best. Like I have told many others my teaching is very unorthodox to a typical PE teacher. I could care less how athletic you are or if you can not do a pull up, push up or even run a mile. What I want and expect from your student will be THEIR BEST. Not their friends best. Students are individuals and will be treated as such. I am very disciplined in my classroom with safety and students being my number one concern. If your student is being safe and working at their best we will have a wonderful year.
Be active this summer! Get outside and play, go play in the water, walk in parks and enjoy your summer!
