Congratulations to
Life-Changing Teaching Award Nominee
Patricia West
Whittier Education Campus

Mrs. West is by far the most influential teacher I’ve had throughout my educational experience. She is kind, nurturing, smart and engaging but most of all she is an outstanding teacher! Mrs. West made learning fun and relevant. It is because of Mrs. West that I am a true lover American history today. There was never a dull moment in Mrs. West’s class. She came to work everyday excited to teach which inspired us to learn! I have never in my entire experience as a student experienced a teacher who exuded the level of enthusiasm she brought to her classroom everyday! Mrs. West made every student feel special. She not only knew the names of her students but she also knew the names of their siblings and parents. Mrs. West was not just my teacher, she was my mentor and my shero! Mrs. West has had a lasting impact on my life. I don’t think there is a person who has ever experienced her as a teacher that would disagree. It is such an honor to write this note on behalf of Mrs. West. She deserves to be celebrated!!
