I am your English 10 or AVID teacher Ms. Westcott!

I am a native of the Verde Valley and graduated from Mingus in 2010. After high school, I went to Yavapai College to play volleyball, where I earned my Associate's Degree. After graduating from Yavapai, I transferred to Grand Canyon University where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. I returned to GCU to earn my Master of Art in Reading with an emphasis in Secondary Education. 

I am beginning my 7th year teaching English at Mingus. When I am not in the classroom I enjoy working out, spending time with my family, my fiancé, and our black labs Emmitt and Riggins. We love camping, fishing, and hiking.
