• Welcome
    Welcome to Mrs. Westhoff's 1st Grade Class!

    Hi!  My name is Mrs. Westhoff, and I am SO excited to be a part of the Tea Titan 1st grade team.  It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures. 

    I was born and raised in Brooking, South Dakota.  I am the youngest of 3 kids in my family.  My brother, Jeremiah, is the oldest and my sister, Jenny, is in the middle.  Jeremiah lives in Brooking with his wife Emily and Jenny lives in Sioux Falls with her husband Ben, so I still get to see them a lot!  In July, I married Mr. Westhoff (he is a 3rd grade teacher, so you may have him too in a couple of years J).  You can see pictures of my whole family on the “Spotlight” board in the front of the room.  I became a Coyote at the University of South Dakota.  (Although, I think I will always be a Jackrabbit at heart!)  This is where I graduated with an Elementary Education Degree and a Volleyball coaching endorsement. 

    I have been in Tea, South Dakota for 5 years now and have loved every minute of it!  I was a substitute/ long-term substitute my 1st year.  Then I taught the pilot year of Jr. Kindergarten with the wonderful Mrs. Peterson.  Now, I have found the love for the 1st grade!  This year will be my second year coaching the Titan Volleyball team, so come and support us!  I love being busy in doing things that I love!
