West Jefferson Elementary

My name is Kim Roush. I have been teaching in Jeffco for over 25 years mostly at West Woods Elementary and Drake Middle School. I have taught all grade levels 1st - 8th and am excited to be in this new role as Digital Teacher Librarian! We recently moved to Pine from Arvada. I share my time between West Jefferson and Wilmot Elementary.
