West Welcomes New Staff Members for the 2020-2021 School Year: Becky Gasaway

Michelle Bishka, Co-Editor-In-Chief

Becky Gasaway is the new school psychology intern at West. This is her first job in a high school, a position similar to a student-teacher. Here at West, Ms. Gasaway is part of the Student Services team, helping students acquire the emotional resources and support they need to be balanced academically, emotionally, and socially. Although Ms. Gasaway attended college for advertising, she had multiple influencing interests and eventually wanted to pursue a second career “in a ‘helping’ profession with children [and] teens.” She enjoys being a pillar that aids “students [to] develop strategies to improve in school.” Although filling a new position in the middle of a pandemic is not ideal, Ms. Gasaway is “making the most of it” and is looking “forward to meeting everyone without a screen or a mask at some point!”
