Hello! My name is Debbie West. I am so excited to be the Medical Instructional Facilitator for the University Heights School of Medical Arts. Our goal is to introduce children to the medical field at a young age so that they know what they want to be when they graduate from Nettleton High School. In addition to exposing them to the broad medical field, we would like to provide health education to our community of families. We have partnered with St. Bernards to help provide health education to our families.
I have taught at Nettleton for the past 16 years, teaching 1st grade, 3rdgrade, and a role in technology. During my years as a classroom teacher, I was able to implement several technology projects. This year, I will also be working with classroom teachers on medical projects, supporting them as they teach your child. I will be co-teaching with them, helping them with project based learning, or connecting community members into our learning.
I am looking forward to teaching your child this year. If you have any questions throughout the year, please email me at
Thank you for supporting our school!
