My name is Rhonda West. I began my education right here at Double Springs Elementary School, and I am a proud 1984 graduate of Winston County High School. I earned my BS in Elementary Education from the University of North Alabama in 1988. I completed my MA at the University of Alabama in Birmingham and later earned an add on certificate in Library Science from Jacksonville State University. In the last 28 and a half years, I have taught in almost every grade level from K-6. I entered the library in August 2002, and it is the best job in the school. I am also an aide on bus SE-3 for the Winston County Transportation Department. I am married to Patrick West, and we have two daughters. Anna Kate teaches 7th Grade Social Science at Muscle Shoals Middle School. Abby is a student at the University of North Alabama. Our newest member of the family is Max, our labradoodle. In additon to church, work, and community activities, I like to read, walk, and go riding in our side-by-side. I just recently started piano lessons. I love my job. Did I mention it's the best job in the school?
