Title and Biography
Hello! First of all, I apologize for any confusion, but my name changed last year from Salyer to Bailey. However, some systems do not allow for names to be changed and thus it still appears as Salyer in the WV email system. I am still me, however! I am happy to say I have been working for the Pocahontas County Schools as a Speech/Language Pathologist for almost 10 years! I am originally from Michigan and have many family members still there. I graduated from Michigan State University and have been blessed to have worked in my field of study since then. I have worked in 5 states, including WV. I also work for WV Birth to Three and Pocahontas Memorial Hospital as a contracted employee, after school hours. I enjoy many outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and biking, which I often do with my adult daughter who lives in Pittsburgh. I am thankful to have such wonderful places to work!
I recently graduated from West Virginia University's 5 Year Benedum Collaborative Accelerated Teacher Education Program. I have my Masters in Elementary Education, a certification in Special Education and am working on my endorsement in Autism Education. I have approximately 1,300 hours of student teaching in Monongalia and Harrison County Schools. My fiance moved to Edray about two years ago and I moved here once I finished college. I am originally from New Jersey but would not trade this gorgeous area for the world. I cannot wait to see what my future holds in the Pocahontas County School System.
