After my graduation from USAO in 1999, I began my teaching career in Jan. 2000 at Alex School. I taught elementary P.E. and was an additional certified teacher in a 2nd grade classroom. The next school year, I began teaching 3rd grade. I taught 3rd grade for 15 years. I am currently teaching 5th through 8th grade math.
I have been selected by my peers to represent Alex Public School as the “Teacher of the Year” in 2001-02 and 2018-19.
Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked at several school in a variety of positions. I have worn many hats, from library aide, cafeteria workers, Title I reading aide,as well as, a teacher’s aide. All of these experiences have helped me to understand that every person is instrumental in the development of each and every student.
I married my husband, Danny Moore, in 1974. We have two children. Our son, Kevin and his wife, Renee have six children, Dakota, Arizona, Mackenzie, Lexi, Montana, and Marie. Our daughter Kayla and her husband Scott have one child, Jackson. Kayla graduated from Alex School in 1999.
My hobbies include gardening, cooking, and reading. When I am not teaching or working, I enjoy spending time with my family.
