Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Amy West
My name is Amy West and I am the music teacher at Roosevelt and Hoover. This is my 17th year teaching music, and my 9th with LPS. After graduating from WMU, I started my career in Lansing, Michigan, then taught music in Ohio & Montana, then moved back home to Michigan! I have loved music my whole life, and decided to be a music teacher when I was in 4th grade! Music is such a nice way to express your creativity and emotion. I love helping children find their singing voice, and teaching them to play instruments. My goal this year is to make the music room a safe, peaceful and fun place where students can feel comfortable being creative as they explore and build their musical skills.
In my spare time I travel as much as possible with my family. I have a husband and a 13 year old son, Calvin. We reside in Farmington. I have a green thumb, and love spending time in my perennial gardens. I spend as much time in nature as I possibly can! I love hiking and camping in our national parks. Over the summer I drove my son out west to see Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Mt. Rushmore, Badlands, and Theodore Roosevelt National Parks. My favorite summer memory was having snowball fight with my son in August, at 10,900 ft! Pictured to the left is my son with me at Glacier National Park. Aug 2019.
