Welcome!

      Hello Liberty family, welcome to my page!
My name is Shaina West and I teach 4th grade math and science to the best kiddos in the world. I have lived in Bedford County my entire life and went to school at Community from kindergarten through high school. After college, I married my high school sweetheart, Zack West. Zack attended Liberty Elementary for a few years before he transferred to Community. We have one son, Hudson, who just turned 3! He is our pride and joy. I feel that Hudson has made me a better teacher, as I can understand how cherished and valuable your children are to you. In our spare time, we love to go to the lake, golf, watch UT football and basketball, and spend time with our friends and family. I also love Hobby Lobby and anything to do with home decor and design. 
 
 
After high school, I received my bachelors degree at MTSU. I chose Education as my career because of the ability teachers have to make a difference in children's lives and how much joy working with children brings me. I have a passion to help students reach their fullest potential in school and in life. I have taught first, second, and fourth grade. Teaching fourth grade math and science has been my favorite so far. Teaching at Liberty is very special and it definitely doesn't feel like I come to "work" everyday. One thing that makes Liberty special, is the family like environment in which everyone is loved and encouraged to be the very best patriot you can be.  
 
I am beyond excited to meet my newest fourth grade patriots and to have an amazing year.
