From her first post as a pre-school teacher to her administrative work as a principal, central office curriculum specialist, superintendent, and her mentoring the next generation of teachers as an adjunct professor at colleges and universities, teaching is her passion.
“Even while serving as superintendent for a decade in Huntsville City Schools, I was still a teacher at heart,” Dr. Moore said. “I am always looking for teachable moments to share with administrators and staff. Perhaps more importantly, I am constantly searching for the opportunity to learn and grow myself. Good teachers are also lifelong learners. Ensuring our teachers and administrators have the opportunity to continue to grow and learn while they work to educate our students is critical.”

We have a supportive board, caring teachers, strong administrators, and most of all, people with a passion to make our schools the best they can be. We are going to work hard to help our students reach their potential.”
