Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am Liz Westgate and I have been a teacher since 2003. I joined the Garden Gate team in 2011. Prior to that, I taught in Santa Clara, San Ramon, and Santa Maria. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, third grade and fourth grade. This year I am excited to be your child's teacher! Every day is a new adventure for learning and exploring. I too enjoy learning and take every opportunity to continue my learning about education so that I can bring new and best practices into my classroom.
My real joys are my son and daughter! Jacob was born October 2011 and Kaitlyn was born October 2013. Jacob is a happy child who loves music, swimming and eating! Kaitlyn adores her big brother and also loves music, dancing, and swimming. You will hear a lot about Jacob and Kaitlyn throughout the year as they are the subject of many of my stories. In our free time my husband and I enjoy doing house projects, working out, running, biking, swimming, hiking and have done several triathlons. I look forward to meeting you and working with your child this year.
