Principal's Message

Chelsea LaPlante, Principal




My name is Chelsea LaPlante, and I am the elated to serve as principal at West Elementary and the Early Childhood Academy.  I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve our community through this new role.
I have spent the last 8 years as an Elementary Instructional Coach in White Settlement ISD.  I’ve had the privilege of working with the students and staff of West Elementary for six of those years in that capacity, so I look forward to continuing to develop those relationships in my new position.  Prior to being an Instructional Coach, I taught kindergarten for 4 years and second grade for 3 years, all at Liberty Elementary in White Settlement ISD.
I graduated from Texas Christian University in 2007 with my Bachelor’s in Education and again in 2008 with my Master of Education.  My family and I bleed purple and love cheering on the Horned Frogs!  
As we begin a new year at West, I look forward to working alongside the staff and families as we create meaningful learning experiences for all our students.  I am passionate about building a culture of literacy and high achievement by fostering relationships with our students, staff, and families.
Please let me know what I can do to help make this year wonderful.  I am always an email or phone call away!
