West Edwards

Professional Biography

  • Hello, my name is West Edwards, and I'm a first and second grade teacher at Seven Oaks Elementary School. The 2019-2020 year will be my 34th in education. After completing my undergraduate degree at UNLV, I taught third grade for three years in Las Vegas, Nevada. I moved to the beautiful pacific northwest in 1988 and taught second grade at Olympic View Elementary for three years. I got a masters degree from Lesley College in 1991, and moved over to this building that same year.  I've been happily employed at Seven Oaks ever since, and I truly love it! Among my many hobbies are playing guitar, bass & drums, hiking and anything that gets me in or on the water. 


  • Our class is a very busy place! We generally work on reading, writing, and language arts in the morning and move into math, science, and social studies after we've had lunch at noon (and lunch recess from 12:20-12:50 + recess from 12:50- 1:05).
