Dawnelle Butler joined Westlake Academy in 2015, where she began in Grade 1. Beginning school year 2018-2019, Mrs. Butler is joining our Grade 3 Team and she is eager for this new challenge. She studied at Texas Christian University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education. During her career, Mrs. Butler has taught Pre-K through Third grade in both public and private school settings. Last year, she received her certification in Computer Science and enjoys incorporating technology into her classroom on a daily basis.
Mrs. Butler is a native Texan, but always enjoys the opportunity to travel with her husband and two sons. She is passionate about learning and loves to help her students cultivate their independence while exploring their interests in learning. In the Summer of 2018, Mrs. Butler was selected by the Fort Worth Teacher Exchange Program where she travelled to Japan to work with teachers and students and learn about their learning culture. We look forward to hearing about this experience and seeing how her learning will be integrated into our WA community.
