    Stacy Bailey, 32, will teach art at Lake Ridge High School for the 2018-19 school year. She began at Lake Ridge Monday and will teach grades nine through 12, district officials said Friday. Classes begin August 15.

    Her attorney, Jason C.N. Smith said that Bailey has never taught high school and her transfer to Lake Ridge High was a "negative change with an increased workload and a steep learning curve."
