The West Back to School Countdown continues!!! Mrs. Lynn Goetten, kindergarten educator at West, recounts her first days as a teacher.  "My first experience with 5 year old students was during my student teaching in Jacksonville. I had a cooperating teacher that taught me that kids learn best through hands on experience. The feeling of capturing these kiddos attention and engaging in real world concepts was contagious! Going into my 23rd year of learning with kindergartners is just as exciting as that first day in Jacksonville! I cannot wait to start another year with new faces!!"  The picture posted is a picture from Mrs. Goetten's very first day of teaching!
