Abby West

I grew up overseas in the United Arab Emirates as well as Indonesia. I returned to the States for college and attended Appalachain State University, where I earned a degree physical education.  I also hold a Master’s degree in early childhood education from the College of Charleston and am National Board Certified in physical education.  I am married to Chris West, who is Carolina Park Elementary's physical education teacher, and have two children.  Sawyer, our son, is ten years old and Baker, our daughter, is seven years old.  We all enjoy fishing, spending time at the beach, and traveling the world.

I am very excited to be your child(ren)'s PE teacher. I have been a part of the Pinckney Elementary family for nine years now and have enjoyed every minute of it!  My goal is to make physical education at the elementary level fun. I also strive to expose students to a variety of sports/games with the hope that they discover new-found interests/strengths and an inner desire to make sports and fitness a part of their daily life.
