This is Michelle Kirby’s first year at RCHS, but it is not her first time teaching. This special education instructor has taught for 13 years, and she is happy to spend her fourteenth year in Rockbridge County.
“I grew up here, I live here, so it was just kind of getting closer to home,” said Kirby. “My kids go to school in Rockbridge schools, so that was kind of a bonus.”
Kirby went to Radford University, where she got degrees in health education as well as special education.
Kirby enjoys teaching at RCHS because of her students.
“They’re a lot of fun to work with and get to know,” said Kirby. “This group especially has a lot of different personalities, but it works.”
Overall, Kirby is looking forward to her first year teaching at RCHS.
