Welcome to Ms. West's Teacher Page
I have been a music teacher in SLzUSD since 1993 and at WMMS since 1998. I play many instruments and I sing, but my favorite is the Double Bass. My favorite part of teaching is when the students take the lead and we are all playing together as a group. In my classes, students will learn to play an instrument, read music and to compose or arrange their own musical ideas.
I attended Chabot College, San Jose State University and Cal State University, Hayward (now Cal State East Bay). I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Composition from CSUH in 1992, and my teaching credential in 1993.
District Tools I Use
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.
I use Canvas and the Aeries Gradebook. Students can see and complete their assignments in Canvas. Students and their parent-guardians can view grades through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App.
