Mrs. West


Hi Iron Horse Families,

My name is Annette West and I am a Literacy Specialist.  I have been a teacher in Douglas County Schools for over 28 years. This is my fourth year at Iron Horse Elementary. I am a trained Orton-Gillingham teacher and I have extensive background in literacy instruction.

When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, sitting on my deck and spending time with my family.  My daughter is a student at Legend High School and my son is attending college. My husband is a project manager for a construction company. I have an orange cat named Benny who loves to chase his tail and sleep on my bed.

I love to read so teaching reading is the best job ever!  Please let me know if you have any questions about how to help your child grow as a reader and a writer.
