• Welcome

    My name is Andy West and I teach English 11 and AP Literature 12 here at West Linn High School.  I've been teaching high school literature and, more generally, a love for art since forever.  Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, my wife (an English teacher at Wilsonville HS) and I moved to Oregon in 1999, motivated by our love of the outdoors.  My family and I bike, hike, fish, camp, etc.  I typically bike-commute to school, and am an avid antique collector (and dealer).  A couple summers ago, I biked to San Francisco, buying Native American pottery along the way and carrying it with me.  I think it's interesting that two of my passions--pottery and poetry--are spelled so similarly.  I like to say, 'Let's go!'


    Here's a few photos of me and my family.  Contact info is at the bottom of the page.


    Let's go!
