         Welcome to First Grade!!!!
    I can't wait for another school year to begin.  Every year I still get excited to see the new school supplies right after my birthday in July.  I had known I wanted to be a teacher when I was in third grade. When I graduated from high school, I went to Marshall University on a running scholarship.  After attending a year there, I decided to stop running.  I worked for three years at Petrucci's and saved my money.  I decided to go back to school.  While still working at Petrucci's, I graduated from West Liberty College (now University) getting my Elementary Education degree.  I substituted for three years. I visited Hancock County schools in West Virginia, Avella, and Burgettstown during those three years. After substituting, my dream came true. I have been teaching First grade at BAEC ever since.
    It will be a GREAT school year!!!
