Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Elizabeth West
My name is Elizabeth West. I moved to North Carolina in 1998. I went to Apex Elementary, Middle, and High school. I attended Elon University where I played volleyball for four years and loved every minute of it. I have always played sports or participated in extra curricular activities because I love being part of team. I believe you can learn something from everyone you meet in your life.
In my free time, I can often be found outdoors working out with my friends and family. I am part of an outdoor fitness group that has changed my life. I am extremely close with my family, so I spend a lot of time with them. I also have my own business that I run on top of teaching. I have one kitty named Ellie who I snuggle with every day. She is the sweetest and cutest cat you'll ever meet-I promise! I love to travel also, but since I've had Ellie I don't like to leave as much because I miss her.
This will be my seventh year teaching. I taught one year in China and spent the last five years teaching third grade. I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Joyner and am ready for a year of learning, fun, and happiness.
