West Jeff kindergarten teacher Alicia Beabout is retiring after 23 years at the school.
Longtime West Jeff kindergarten teacher retires

It wouldn’t be unfair to compare West Jefferson Elementary School’s kindergarten teacher Alicia Beabout to Ms. Frizzle from “The Magic School Bus.”

She’s funny and creative; has unwavering energy and passion for teaching; and is always trying to find better ways for her students to learn both academics and how to be good people, Beabout’s co-workers describe.

A staple of West Jeff’s kindergarten program for 23 years, Beabout will retire this month to spend more time hiking, fly-fishing and on other outdoor adventures.
