Wildcats,

Over the past few weeks I have spoken with several parents asking clarifying questions about the reopening of school. We have had great conversation! I recognize that there are still lingering questions and hope that I can clear them up for you.

Submitted by arlene.haymond on Thu, 08/06/2020 - 07:24

Hi there! I’m Michelle Mesinar. I am Westside’s new librarian. For the past two years I worked as Title I Tech at Westside. I absolutely loved working with kids and seeing their progress. I am also a Sophomore volleyball coach at Spanish Fork High School. I am from Las Vegas and I have lived in Springville for four years with my family. I am married and have 3 kids, Brayden 22, Lauren 16 and Peyten 14, oh and three dogs and 2 cats.  I love to read and it sounds weird, but I love books and the smell of books. I love all sports and being outside.

I am Mrs. Kati Wafford.  I was Westside's librarian last year and I am excited to be a new 3rd grade teacher.  I grew up in Rancho Cucamonga California and have lived in Utah for the past 15 years.  I have 5 awesome kids and 6 chickens.  I love blue cheese and chocolate just not together. I think Westside is the best and I am looking forward to a fantastic year!!
