Kindergarten 2021

Welcome to Kindergarten new and returning families!

I'm excited for the school year to begin and look forward to meeting those of you that are new to West TV!

Beaverton School District intends to welcome back all children at all grade levels for a full day of in-person instruction in the fall. Families who do not wish to send their students back for in-person instruction at their neighborhood school should apply to our permanent distance learning option, FLEX Online School.

About the Kindergarten Teachers

Ms. Angie Regali

I am Angie Regali and this is my seventh year teaching kindergarten at West TV and my fifteenth year as a classroom teacher. I am so honored and excited to be your child’s teacher! My goal is to provide a nurturing environment where your child can grow as a learner, learn to love school, and make friends.

Outside of the classroom I have a busy home life. I have four daughters- Sam (junior at University of Washington), Stella (sophomore at University of Oregon), Kate (ninth grade Special Ed student at Beaverton High School), and Claire (seventh grade at Whitford). I grew up in Eugene (Go Ducks!) and I am also an animal lover. Our family pets include six hens, one turtle named Teddy, a leopard gecko named Steve, a lion head rabbit named Beau, and a sweet basset hound named Hurley. I love cooking, audio books, running, paddle boarding, camping, gardening, and teaching kindergarten!

During these 2 days, the Kindergarten teachers will schedule a time to meet individually with each student and do an assessment. Then half of the Kindergarten students will attend school on Day 3 and the other half on Day 5. All Kindergarten students will attend school on Day 5.
