When I started Kindergarten at WT Moore I was shy, REALLY shy. After getting used to WT Moore I realized there was nothing to be afraid of. The teachers made me feel good about myself. Slowly I came out of my shell, building confidence. As the years went on, I became more social, participated in more activities and made a lot of friends that will last a lifetime. My teachers at Moore have always been kind, loving and encouraged me to do my very best. In fourth grade I think I surprised everyone when I won the school’s Tropicana Speech Contest and went on to the District contest. My Moore family supported me all the way. This year as I began fifth grade I chose to run for student body President. This is something I never dreamed I would do when I first started my education at Moore. With the help and support of everyone around me I have had a successful 6 years in Elementary School. I am ending my time at Moore as the student body President.
For over a year, I have had the privilege of being a part of W.T. Moore Elementary School. During this time, I have had the incredible opportunity to mentor two students, and judge the annual Spelling Bee and Speech Contest. Through these opportunities, I have seen firsthand the talented administration and faculty and their dedication to teach and support their students. When you walk through the hallways of this school, you can feel the joy and happiness of students and teachers alike.

As a mother of two children and as a former elementary educator, I am extremely opinionated about quality in education and about what kind of experience I want for my kids. W.T. Moore continues to meet and exceed my very high expectations. When I attended the school’s registration and open house, Mrs. Anderson, the principal, explained that she loves and treats each student like her own. She acknowledged the huge level of trust it takes for parents to entrust the school with their children. Finally, she promised that W.T. Moore was a community school - eager to have parents and volunteers involved and included.
