5th Grade

Welcome! My name is Monica West! I have been teaching fifth grade at Boyd for the past seven years, and have loved every minute of it . I received my Bachelor's in Education at Northwest Missouri State in Maryville, Missouri.  I also attained my Master’s in Leadership in Education from Midland University in Fremont, Nebraska.   I want to instill in my students the power of education.  I will strive each day to make learning a fun and enriching process.   Fifth grade is a busy year with many unlimited learning experiences.  We will be working on learning to manage our time, working cooperatively, developing good study habits, preparing for middle school, and working hard to achieve our highest potential.  I am a strong believer in student and parent relationships, this will continue to drive student success. In my spare time I enjoy being with my family and friends. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am here to help in anyway I can. Go Beavers!!!

5th Grade

"Welcome to Boyd! I have been a 5th Grade teacher at Boyd for 4 years and I love being a Boyd Beaver! I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Inclusive Practices and a Minor in Psychology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I am currently working towards a Masters in Math Education at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln starting in the Summer of 2020.  My absolute favorite subjects to teach are Math and Science. My passion is providing authentic learning opportunities for students through engaging activities and meaningful practice. 5th Graders are getting ready for Middle School and I have expectations that will develop those essential Middle School skills that students need in order to be successful. Go Beavers!"
