Janel Westerfield

I'm Mrs. Westerfield! 


Welcome to 2nd grade! This is my second year teaching at Ft. Thomas Elementary School. I graduated in 2011 with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and was a substitute teacher in Kankakee, Illinois before moving to Arizona.

I strive to make my classroom a safe place where all are comfortable learning. One thing I stress is that we ALL participate, because we are ALL working together to learn. 

*Weekly Specials Schedule* 

Monday: Computers
Tuesday: Computers (every other week)
Thursday: Library
Friday: Physical Education

Reading: We are working extra hard this year to get our reading fluency scores up! Our end of year goal is to read 82 words per minute. You can help your child reach this goal by listening to your child read, and reading to your child! You are the best example of an experienced reader, and your child learns every time you read. 

Math: This year we will be learning addition and subtraction with BIG numbers! We will also learn about counting money and telling time. 

Progress reports will be handed out every three weeks; report cards will be handed out at the end of each quarter. See the Parent Portal to check out your child's current grade!
