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!
