It's the beginning of a new school year and with that comes new traditions for both students and teachers in Nelson County.
Getting the school day started can be tough for some students, but a teacher at Nelson Middle School is doing her best to change that.
Katherine Baron-Stump is a special education teacher at the middle school.
On the first day, she decided to wear a costume to greet students as they got off the bus.
After seeing their reactions, she decided to make it a tradition.
"Every day should start with a smile when you walk into school and it's important to start their day off happy and if I can do that I will do it every day," Stump said.
Stump also started a clothing closet in her classroom.
