    "My child has attended Westarea for two years. Her teachers were great but the administration is not. Mrs. Backman's contract should not be renewed. I do believe a stronger leader is necessary to improve processes, ensure thorough and timely communication with parents and set a higher standard for student achievement. The PTA barely meets and if they do you wouldn't know because it's not consistent"

    "Westarea Elementary is an excellent school. There are a lot of hard working teachers and support staff working at the school. They have a lot of programs that help the students become more well rounded. Mrs. Backman cares a lot about the students. She works hard to make sure that they students are learning and are prepared. Students at this school have a lot of opportunities to grow. I would recommend this school to anyone."

    "Our son has been attending Westarea Elementary School since the 3rd grade. Since the arrival of Mrs. Backmann, there has been a wonderful change. Even the entrance into the school is welcoming! As an involved parent, I see how the positive changes have created positive results. Mrs. Backmann share the vision in that all students have potential to exceed and be successful. I see how the Instructional Coaches, Tutors and Support Staff focus on students requiring additional help; I see how parents involvement have increased, particularly at Parent Curriculum Night; and I see how parents receive various resources to assist their child at home. The students have various CLUBS they can be a part of that weren t available before. Most importantly, the shared vision, positive energy, and boost in morale have increased students test scores and teacher/staff morale. WAES have had its share of negativity however, I must say it has changed for the better due to fair and firm leadership. Although we see Mrs. Backmann, Mrs. Callejas, Teachers, Support Staff doing their part, let us as parents do our part to make this an even better school. Come and be part of a great team. Yes We Can!"

    "Opinions! This is my opinion. Since Mrs. Backman has arrived at Westarea Elementary, there has been changes; changes for the betterment of the school and community. Beyond doubt, her work is always in the best interest of the students and their families. She truly believes in structure and professionalism. I view her leadership style as assist and insist. Mrs. Backman will assist and mentor faculty and staff members until they are proficient with the set objectives and goals of the school, and then insist that level is sustained. I have witnessed on several occasions her being verbally abused by parents however; she put on the full armor, and then placed up the shield of faith to extinguish all the flaming arrows. Therefore, she displayed the character of the expectation of her faculty and staff members; patients, passion, and professionalism. Westarea is in a better standing and continuing to improve weekly in all aspects."

    "Ms Batman is the worst thing that ever happened to this school.... Please don't let her continue another year... I am so disappointed in the superintendent for not reconciling this problem before this goes on another year"
