Mrs. West

First Grade


Hello, my name is Joan West.  I grew up in Doylestown with six sisters and three brothers!!  I attended Sts. Peter and Paul School (having my dad as my second grade teacher) and Chippewa High School.  I received a soccer scholarship to St. Peter’s University in Jersey City, New Jersey.  I obtained my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and American Studies.  I stayed at St. Peter’s as a Graduate Assistant in the Offices of Community Services and Career Services, earning my Master’s Degree in Reading.

After moving back to Doylestown I started my career at Chippewa Middle School as a Special Education Tutor.  I worked at there for 5 years, obtaining my Intervention Specialists license.  I then came to Hazel Harvey as a Title 1 Reading Tutor and this is my third year as a Kindergarten Teacher.

My husband Matthew and I have three children Cally, Parker, and Maryn.  On Sundays, I teach sixth grade PSR at Sts. Peter and Paul and when I have free time I like to play sports, coach sports, and go on hikes.  I am very excited to be teaching and have the opportunity to share my knowledge and love of learning.

I can be reached at Hazel Harvey 330-658-2522 X311,


Best wishes for a great year!!!
