While there, she trained to become one of three TOC (Technology Opportunity Center) directors in Mingo County, teaching evening courses to community members.
Due to a reduction in force, Ms. Marsico was transferred to the Mingo County Career Center for the 2001-02 school year and has been there ever since; however, the school has gone through a number of name changes during that time and is now known as the Mingo Extended Learning Center. She taught the secondary business classes until they were moved to Mingo County Comprehensive High School for the 2011-2012 school year, at which time she was transferred to the adult medical office program. During her time here, she earned the +45 hours beyond her masters, completed the Technology Specialist training, and earned National Board Certified Teacher status. She has attended countless hours of professional development and has also been a trainer for the Mingo County Summer Teacher Academy twice.
