By receiving this award it has allowed her to look back at her past and realize how far she has come in just a few years.

Not only was winning the award great, being able to celebrate with her students is what made it all.

"It was really nice that was the best part of getting the award just being able to celebrate with them." Moore continued.

While teaching her classes she always makes sure to take in every moment of it.

"Even the small moments they make where they realize they learn something new or they met their own goal is really powerful."

Winning this award comes from her motivation to help her students learn in a more creative way.

Other than doing her job by educating her students being able to see them grow and succeed is why she does it.

"Thats a really rewarding part of teaching for me is seeing students develop those real life and transferable skills while they're becoming better readers and writers." Moore went on to say.
