Mrs. Moore - Third Grade Teacher

I am very excited to be in my second year as part of the Oakley Elementary School 3rd grade team!

A little about me... I have lived in Asheville, NC for over 18 years and am a native of Traverse City, MI.  I often say that I have been lucky enough to live in two of the most gorgeous places on earth!  I enjoy these amazing mountains with my children and husband who definitely keep me on my toes!  I am a graduate of Mars Hill University and have a BA in Elementary Education, K-6.  This is my 5th year with Buncombe County Schools during which I have been a parent volunteer, a substitute teacher, a Title One Assistant, and licensed teacher.  I am a life-long learner and will continue to enhance my teaching career at every opportunity.

Third grade is such a pivotal year for children socially and academically.  As the first tested grade for North Carolina, we hit the ground running on day one so having your student ready to learn is essential.  I am always amazed at how much my students grow in one school year and I know you will be amazed, as well.  In the classroom, we fully embrace the Growth Mindset every day.  To learn more about this, please visit  Remember, learning can happen anywhere, at anytime, in the most amazing ways!
