Staff Profile

My name is Liz Shaw. I am so excited to start my first year at Westgate in the 7/8 team!


I am originally from Buffalo, New York. Go Bills! When I am not in the classroom I love spending time with my family, hiking, and snowboarding.  I studied chemistry and science education at the Universities of Fredonia and Buffalo. I am fascinated with the discovery of new technology and have conducted research in the fields of protein engineering, medicinal chemistry, and neuroscience. Teaching science is my passion. I love developing inquiry-based materials to guide others in viewing the world from a scientific perspective. Remember, we are all scientists!
