Ms. Badger is the best! this is a woman who gets it!! read, read,read to your children--if nothing else!! i would not want to leave out any of the staff because form the office to the teachers to the specialists-they love these kids!!they treat and care for our children the way you would want and expect them to. The staff works so hard to educate these young minds, my only wish is that all parents would spend more time reading with their children. It really does make a difference. It also makes your child feel closer to you and they are more likely to talk with you. It benefits all!learn to read and then read to learn! west is the best and has the best staff! my hats off to all the staff for caring about our children and their progress and helping them to meet their goals!kudos!
