Mrs. Penny Foose
Hi! My name is Mrs. Foose and I teach at Brooke Primary North in Follansbee, WV. I have been working for Brooke County Schools for over 30 years. I have taught Special Education, Kindergarten, and First Grade. I attended West Liberty State College and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I received my Master of Arts degree in Special Education with a specialization in Behavioral Disorders. I have continued with my education and currently hold a Master of Arts degree plus 45 hours.
I was a Master Trainer for the state of West Virginia and currently a FOSS (Full Option Science System) consultant. This has given me the opportunity to train teachers throughout the state in the area of science and how to best utilize the Hands On Science kits used in the classrooms. I have also worked on aligning the ELA standards for the current NxG. I have received training at the state level on the Common Core and have been a trainer for my county. I have served on the text book adoption committees for Science and ELA and have been a mentor trainer for new teachers.
What a wonderful journey it has been! I enjoy teaching and watching children get excited about learning. Every day is a new day full of learning and laughter.
