Mrs. Farica West
Welcome! I am so happy to be a part of the Samson Tiger family!
Having spent 40 years of my life in the Pensacola area where I was born and raised, my husband and I moved about 8 years ago to Graceville, Florida. My husband grew up there, and he wanted to come back home to this area.
After high school, I pursued my Bachelors of Science in Special Education at the University of West Florida. A few years later, I added a Masters degree in Instructional Technology and Educational Leadership, also from UWF. Over the course of my lifetime in education, I have served as a special education teacher, inclusion teacher, intervention teacher, held numerous roles at the district level, as well as serving in the capacity of Assistant Principal and Principal.
My husband and I currently live in Graceville, Florida in the Poplar Springs community. Together, we have six children. Two graduated last year
(boy/girl twins) and are now serving in the United States Air Force. We also have another son serving in the Army!
I am excited to be serving as an interventionist this year and look forward to working with all of our wonderful Samson Tigers!
