4th Grade

Shawnee Wester


I am very excited to be teaching 4th grade this year. I have been a teacher in the Rim Country since 2001. My bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Elementary Education are both from NAU.

I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. In my free time, I love camping, fishing, reading, off-roading, traveling, and hanging out with family and friends.
