Hello Everyone!

My name is Michelle Van Alst. I am a first grade teacher at Fairview Elementary. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education.  I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.

My husband and I have a beautiful family of two sons. I have lived in West Plains, since 1998 before that I lived in a small town in the boot heel of Missouri. I enjoy being outdoors.   I spend my free-time crossfitting, floating, trail riding, and reading.
