Moving on: Mike Wells

Q: Do you think your skills will change at Central? Why or why not? A: I will always continuously reflect on what I do or try to find something better or new. So yes, but I will still be the same teacher I am now because of what I learned here at West.

Q: How long have you taught at West?

A: I am finishing my eleventh year here at West.

 

Q: What will you miss most about West?

A: I will miss the staff, and a lot of the students. I’ll miss fun times at events and the extra things we do here, like the lip sync battles and all those cool neat things.

 

Q: Where are you transferring to and why?

A: I am heading to Davenport Central. The reason I am changing buildings is because I kind of need a change for myself. I think it would be good for me to get into a new place. I have never seen another school other than West.

 

Q: When did you decide to move?

A: I did not decide until February or March just because a job popped up. I couldn’t go to Central unless a position opened. What we do as a district is we post them online and then people can bid on then. When the job popped up, I figured I would give it a chance.

 

Q: What have you learned from West?

A: Everything I know about teaching is from West, [like] all my teaching strategies, all my classroom management and anything like that. My last three year I have been in a lead teacher role. All the working with staff has been learned here at West.

 

Q: How will you use those skills at Central?

A: They have shaped me into who I am, so it will just drive everything I do in the classroom and all the stuff I take on with a leadership role with them.

About the Contributor
Naomi Walker, Co-Media Editor and Business Manager

Senior Naomi Walker is currently a Co-Media Editor and Business Manager for the West High Beak ‘n’ Eye.

Walker is a little undecided when it comes to what she wants to do in the future. She believes she either wants to go to Purdue University in Indiana or Iowa State University. At either of those colleges she would like to study to be either a chiropractor, law enforcement agent or an anesthesiologist.

One thing that Walker does plan on doing is moving to North Carolina with her sister.

“There’s mountains and beaches and I love them both so much,” Walker daydreams.

When not in the newspaper room at school she participates in cheer, National Honors Society, and newspaper. In her free time she also enjoys painting, hanging out with friends and working out.
