Missy DeMoss joined Westlake Academy in 2007, where she has taught Grades 1 and 2. After receiving a business degree and later a post baccalaureate EC-4 teaching certification from the University of North Texas, she taught G1 for seven years before transitioning to G2. Her personal philosophy is that children learn from their own experience and observations. This explains her passion for the International Baccalaureate curriculum where IB provides a framework allowing children to construct their knowledge and take ownership in their learning. Our school has a very diverse community full of internationally minded and knowledgeable educators, parents, and students. Since Mrs. DeMoss considers herself a lifelong learner, Westlake Academy has been an amazing environment for her to grow personally and professionally. In her free time, Mrs. DeMoss enjoys spending time with her daughters Alli and Megan and husband Deric, who coaches our Varsity Soccer Teams.
