My name is John Westers and this is my fifth year teaching Grade 3 at Griffin Park. I absolutely love the school, staff and students! I’m excited to teach and learn with my students this year. I feel blessed to have an extremely rewarding career.

Before becoming a teacher, I went to Medicine Hat College and received a two year diploma in Information Technology with a focus on computer programming. Shortly afterwards I went back to university and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in General Social Sciences from the University of Lethbridge. I worked for a few years and went back to school and received my Bachelor of Education Degree from the University of Alberta through the Medicine Hat College Rural Education Program.

Before teaching at Griffin Park School, I taught part-time at Parkside School in Redcliff. I taught Grade 8 and 9 Math, CTS (Trades elective), and a Communications Technology elective.

My interests and hobbies are listening to music, reading, working out, playing guitar and bass, and computers.

If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. My contact information can be found on the Griffin Park School webpage.
