Hello! My name is Michelle Rooney and I am excited to be your second grade teacher this year. Welcome to the Second Grade Learning Community! I am beginning my 24th year teaching at West Muskingum and my 22nd year teaching 2nd grade. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Muskingum College (University) in Elementary Education and a Master in the Art Teaching from Marygrove College. I have held the designation of Master Teacher from the Ohio Department of Education since 2012. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, doing crafts, fishing and being outdoors. My greatest joy is working with children and watching their excitement and love for learning. I am looking forward to beginning a new school year with our learning community and getting to know you! Second Graders are the best!
