Dear Parents & Students,

Welcome to 4th grade!! I am so excited to start our new school year and meet all of you! I am thrilled to be a part of the fourth grade team here at West Muskingum Elementary! It’s going to be a great year full of learning and great experiences. I can’t wait to learn about you, until then here is some information about me!

I was born and raised in a small town in Michigan (don’t hold that against me). I always wanted to be a teacher growing up and was blessed to have wonderful teachers inspire me to do so. I attended Eastern Michigan University for 2 years. In 2009, I married my wonderful husband Jared, and moved to North Carolina where he was stationed while in the Marine Corps. I finished my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a concentration in Language Arts at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

We moved to my husband’s hometown of Zanesville, OH in 2012. I started teaching at Muskingum County Head Start teaching preschool children. I was then very lucky to receive a position with their new public preschool program called World of Wonder. We now live in Dresden with our 2 sons Jason, who just turned 4, and Andrew who is almost 3 months and our two dogs, Max and Bear. When I have free time I enjoy playing with my kids, going to musicals, and visiting my family in Michigan.

I believe parent communication is crucial for your child’s education. Please don’t hesitate to call, email, or write a note if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Pickrell
