Mrs. Jo-Ellen Connolly
As a graduate of Brooke High School, I am so excited to be working here at Brooke Primary North. After high school, I graduated from West Liberty State College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary and Special Education. I received my Master of Arts degree in Special Education- specializing in Gifted Education- from West Virginia University, and my Administrative Certification from Salem International University. This is my 30th year in education and my 12th as an administrator. Prior to coming to BPN, I was the principal of Colliers Primary School for 10 years and the Assistant Principal at Wellsburg Middle School for one year. My teaching and administrative experiences span two states - West Virginia and Ohio. I taught Special Education and was Gifted Education Coordinator with the Edison Local School District in Hammondsville, Ohio for 14 years. While working for Brooke County Schools, I have been a primary school Gifted Education teacher, high school special education teacher, high school girl's varsity volleyball coach, and now as an administrator.
