My name is Laura Chalstrom.
I am extremely excited to be at Westgate this year!
I was born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and graduated from Valley City State University in North Dakota. I love to travel and have worked with children around the world. I settled down here, in Colorado, 3 years ago. Teaching is my passion and Kindergarten is my favorite grade so far! I am a huge advocate of social emotional learning and play based education! Music and singing are also a huge part of my classroom.
When I am not in the classroom, I am hiking in the mountains, traveling, or hanging out with my family. I am an adrenaline junkie, and I am always up for an adventure!
I can't wait to meet all of our students and have an amazing year!
