Barb Gale: I am a Learning Specialist and this is my 22nd year at Westgate. I was born and grew up in Michigan, just outside of Detroit in the suburb of Livonia. I moved to Colorado with my sisters when I was 19 years old. I have three grown children, (a boy and two girls) and five grandchildren. I love watching the Broncos and the Rockies. Spending time with my family is very important to me.

Terese Hutchins: I am a Learning Specialist and this is my 11th year at Westgate. I am originally from Minnesota but have lived in Colorado for more than 30 years. I love my family, love to ski, hike and be outside. Teaching is my dream job and I love it here at Westgate!

Carolyn Hoff: I am the Speech Language Pathologist returning to Jeffco after being in private practice since 2006. This year I will be at Westgate 5 days a week. I love art, being in the mountains and spending time with my family. I look forward to working and learning with the staff and the children at Westgate.

Tesla Stainbrook: I am the social worker at Westgate this year. I am here full time and will support students at all grade levels. Previously I worked at Bell Middle school and prior to that at Smokey Hill High School in Cherry Creek.
