Hello everyone! My name is Sandra West and I am the Resource teacher here at Forbush Elementary. I am thrilled to work in such a great school. I have over 18 years experience working with elementary and middle school special education students. I attended UNC-Charlotte and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and later earned a license in Special Education. I have a K-12 Cross Categorical license and have worked with students with all areas of disabilities. In my classroom I use research based programs with my students in the area of reading, writing and math. My goal is to create and foster a positive learning environment for your child. I take pride in watching your child learn and grow.
