Ms. Tina Westawker

My name is Tina Westawker and I have been teaching kindergarten in Saint Paul Public Schools for over 26 years. I grew up and live in Saint Paul. I attended the Saint Paul Public schools and graduated from Central Highschool in 1990.  I went across the field to Concordia College for my early childhood and teaching degrees.   I am married and have 4 children. My oldest son Dylan, now lives outside of Boston and is engaged.  My other son Luke graduated from college last year and will be studying in a lab in Germany this winter.  My two girls are still at home.   Sarah will be a freshman at Central High School and Annie will be a senior there.   I love animals and have 2 dogs and 2 cats.  We also foster kittens for the Humane Society.  I love the outdoors.  I love taking walks with my dogs and working in the yard.  I enjoy horseback riding, camping, reading and being at home.  I love teaching kindergarten.  I love the energy and enthusiasm of 5 year old kids and I enjoy watching them grow into learners who love school.
