Estes is WUHS Staff Standout for October

West Union High School will be featuring in The People’s Defender a new teacher every month this year. These teachers are not necessarily new to the field of teaching, but new to the WUHS building.

The featured teacher for October is Ms. Marissa Estes. Ms. Estes is originally from Manchester and attended Manchester High School. She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish and her Masters Degree in Education from Morehead State University. She has spent the last three years of her career at St. Patrick High School in Maysville, Ky. This year, Ms. Estes is teaching Spanish I, Spanish II, and Spanish III for West Union High School students.

Ms. Estes loves teaching Spanish and she feels that learning Spanish has expanded her view of the world and she would like to pass that on to her students, especially those from our rural area. She enjoys teaching her subject because she feels that Spanish, “gives the learner a sense of accomplishment as well as a sense of belonging to a diverse peer group.” Her favorite thing about being at WUHS is being able to teach students from her own community.

Other than being at school, one thing that Ms. Estes likes to do is listen to Dave Ramsey’s radio show and she hopes to meet him one day. One item on her bucket list is to see the west coast, specifically northern California and southern Oregon.

Congratulations Ms. Estes on being the Staff Standout for October.
