Shawn Valloric, otherwise known as Coach V, is a BHS Alumni and was hired to Bellaire Schools in 2001 and has been here ever since. He taught at Martins Ferry for two years before he was hired at Bellaire, but knew he belonged here because he was a true Big Red! Valloric’s favorite aspect about Bellaire Schools is that he works with good people and for great kids. He appreciates anyone who gives time and effort and puts forth hard work to become successful. In his free time he enjoys relaxing. Valloric’s advice to students is: “Having a good attitude and putting in effort is all you need to be successful.”
This year makes Terry Savage’s second year at Bellaire Local Schools, and he absolutely loves it! Before this, he worked at Cambridge Schools for thirteen years. His favorite attribute about Bellaire schools is working with the students; he loves how different they all are from each other. In his free time, he enjoys reading, going to the gym and spending time with his son. Savage’s advice for students is to be positive, work hard and have fun! He believes the best skills to have is patience and listening skills. Lastly, he feels very honored to be chosen as staff of the month and wishes ALL Big Reds luck with whatever they do and is looking forward to more years here!
