Mrs. Westerbeck

Hello.  My name is Tammy Westerbeck.  I am a 3rd grade teacher.  This is my 21st year of teaching elementary school in North Carolina.  After graduating from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, I moved down south to begin my teaching career. I have taught every grade at one point from PreK to 6th.   This will be my 6th year at River Dell Elementary.  You may know me from teaching 5th grade over the past few years.  It is time for a change.  My goal as a teacher is to make every child feel loved and accomplished.  All of the children I work with are cared for like I would care for my own 4 children.  Teaching is my passion and I strive to be the best teacher that I can be each and every day.
