Mrs. Moore - Third Grade Teacher

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

I grew up the small town of Traverse City, Michigan and moved to Asheville, North Carolina almost 20 years ago.  Shortly after moving, I met my husband and we have boy-girl twins who keep us on our toes!  I am a graduate of Mars Hill University (GO LIONS!) where I obtained a BA in Elementary Education and a NC Licensure for K-6 Elementary Education.  This is my 5th year with Buncombe County Schools during which I have been a volunteer, a substitute teacher, a Title One Assistant, and 3rd Grade Teacher.  I am a life-long learner and will continue to enhance my teaching career in every way possible.  I truly love teaching and most of all love learning!

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!
