New Paraprofessionals Start at WHS
With the coming school year, several new paraprofessionals have joined Wooster High School.
Kelly Grayshock is a credit recovery paraprofessional at WHS. Her duties involve coordinating students and ensuring they remain on task. She hails from Richmond, Ky., and states that she came to Wooster because she wanted to be closer to her family and friends.
Casey McGurk is also a credit recovery paraprofessional. She is originally from Wooster and attended Ashland University. She states her love for Wooster caused her to return, and she now assists students with schoolwork and provides them with academic guidance.
Rick Grayshock is a paraprofessional in the educational disability room. He works one-on-one with students to help them achieve their goals. Originally hailing from North Royalton, Grayshock says he came to Wooster because of his job and because of his friends in the area. Grayshock said he was, at one time, a sports writer.
Also a paraprofessional, Kyle Buxton comes to WHS from his alma mater, Ashland University. He said that his duties involve the same one-on-one interaction as other paraprofessionals, so that he can help students do their work. Buxton says he is a capable juggler and is helping to coach the soccer team.
WHS alum Avari Gress is a new specialized paraprofessional, serving as a teacher’s aid in Robert Williams’ class. She spends her entire day with the students in Williams’ class. She explains her return to Wooster resulted from the job opportunity and from people who work for the district giving it a glowing recommendation.
