Mrs. Kathryn Westcott

Welcome to Mrs. Westcott's home page.

Wow...where has the time gone.  the 2019 school year begins my 28th year with Norwood Schools.

I grew up in Littleton Colorado and graduated from Arapahoe High School in 1980.  My next stop was Salt Lake City where I attended Westminster College majoring in personnel management and marketing.  After graduating in 1984 I returned to Colorado.  I spent a couple of years working for Gart Brothers under the watchful eye of Jerry Gart at the Sports Castle, then went to work for Mile Hi Cablevision.  My climb up the corporate ladder was cut short when several of us were laid off. (I later discovered this was due to the CFO embezzling from the company.)

After reevaluating my future and thinking back to Mr. Holmes my high school history teacher, I decided to return to school.  I enrolled at the University of Northern Colorado and began classes for certification in Middle School Social Studies, which I completed in 1990. I continued my education through UNC, earning a Masters in Educational Media in 2000.  

Looking for a few years experience before returning to the front range, I took the position of high school social studies teacher here at Norwood.  Those "few years" have become 28.  I've taught social studies, history, technology, photography, coached, sponsored the yearbook, became librarian and have traveled far and wide supporting and photographing the kids at their many events.

If I'm not at school or a school related event I'm home with my husband Mike and our furry children Fin and Cane, or volunteering with the Norwood Fire Department.  I enjoy warm weather, the sand between my toes, listening to Jimmy Buffett, cooking, photography and paddle-boarding.
