Hello Westside Rockets!  

We are blasting off to a great year and the amazing things that are happening at Westside!

My name is Jill Kaufman and this is my fifth year as Assistant Principal of Westside Elementary. I received my Master's Degree  from Abilene Christian University and my bachelor's degree in education from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor.   My teaching experiences include 19 years at Florence ISD, 3 years in Killeen ISD, and 5 years in Leander ISD.   I was the principal at Florence Elementary for 2 years  before coming to Leander to experience a new culture and collaborative community. Some of the roles that I have encountered in education are 2nd Grade teacher, 4th Grade teacher, 5th Grade teacher, inclusion teacher, and math interventionist for K-5, coaching teachers along with serving on many committees.  My husband is a graduate of Leander ISD and our daughter is teaching Biology at Vandergrift Highschool.  

Each week we celebrate C2 at Westside by wearing our C2  shirts on Wednesdays and Fridays is wear your rocket spirit shirt.  Please see Heather Woehl, our counselor for Cshirts and PTA for spirit shirts.  

At Westside we are developing leaders who will become lifelong learners and seize the opportunity to grow.  This  next year we will be working toward being a Leader in Me campus.  We are an official "Leader in Me" campus as of 2015-2016.  We are a team that works together for the success of our students.   We "Lead", "Grow", and "Inspire" our students, families and staff along with the world.
