Hi! I am Jennifer Westfall. I have been a teacher for Jefferson County Schools and for Westridge since 1999. I have taught 3rd grade, ¾ Multi-age, and 4thgrade. I have enjoyed Westridge and working with all of the amazing staff at Westridge so much so, that my son and daughter both attended Westridge their entire elementary career.
What I truly love about Westridge and why I have spent my entire teaching career here is the wonderful community, teachers, families, and staff. The children that come through my classroom doors each year have taught me so much, possibly even more than I have taught them. Everyone of my students have left a lasting impression on my heart. I especially love when past students come back to see me and allow me to celebrate in all their successes they have achieved; including graduation from college.
When I am not busy planning, teaching, grading, or taking classes to better my teaching abilities; I love spending time with my fabulous husband and two very busy children. We love going on mini“day-cations” throughout Colorado and camping throughout Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. We enjoying boating, Wakeboarding, and tubing. My children have set a new goal for us to get our boat in all of the state parks in Colorado so they can tube and Wakeboard on each one.(Quite a lofty goal, but one in which we all are enjoying trying to achieve!)

I am truly looking forward to spending this next school year getting to know you and your student. Third grade is an amazing year filled with fun, learning, growing (sometimes with a few tears and a lot of laughs), and an ever expanding knowledge base. I think you will be wowed at the academic, social, character, and physical growth your child will make this year. Third grade truly is a wondrous time in your child's life. This is going to be an extraordinary year!!!! I can't wait to take this momentous journey with you and your child.
