Hello! My name is Jessica Stamer and I am a first year TK teacher at Westwood. I recently graduated from Northwestern College. I am beyond excited to work at Westwood. Westwood Community School District brings a community together that all wants each and every one of their students to succeed, and that is something I am beyond grateful to be a part of. I believe that the most powerful educators are those who care, exercise patience, always seek to understand, and meet each child where he/she currently is. I can't wait to bring my teaching philosophy to Westwood! Go Rebels!!
