My name is Sandy Moore. I have been teaching elementary grade students for 25 years. During the first nine years of my career, I taught second through fifth grades at Stearns Elementary in McCreary County, Kentucky. For the past sixteen years, I have been teaching first grade at Hopkins Elementary School. My educational experience includes a Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Kentucky University, a Master’s degree and Rank I from Union College.
I am a very driven person and full of energy. I work to the best of my ability to challenge my students. My classroom reflects structure, high energy and hands-on learning. My students are actively engaged and learning at all times.
Although many years have passed since my first day of teaching, my philosophy remains. I believe that a teacher should teach “up” instead of “down.” I have high expectations for all students, and I do believe all children can learn.
