If you have stumbled upon this page you are bound to wonder who Mrs. Moran is…Welcome! I will be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year. Teaching is an amazing occupation! I find each year is a new and exciting adventure. I began my journey in 2001. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I earned this degree in three years in order to teach prior to entering into the Masters program at Ohio State. I was thrilled to teach kindergarten my first year and then return to Ohio State and earn my Masters Degree in 2003.
Since graduating, I went on to teach kindergarten through third grade. I hold a Master Teacher designation. I have also taken numerous leadership roles over the years such as team leader and mentor to new teachers. I have truly loved each of my 16 years in teaching. It is an amazing feeling to know you have helped mold a young child’s future. I look at each day as an opportunity to reach a child and let them know just how special they are. I am honored to have the privilege to teach your child how to become a reader, an inquisitive scientist, an author and a mathematician. All this and we will get to play games, sing songs and pretend! See…this is why I love this job!
When I am not teaching, you will find I manage to stay very busy. I love spending time with my amazing family. My husband and I are the proud parents of three children. Isabella is my sweet, artistic 12 year old. Olive is my inquisitive, adventurous 4 year old and Henry is 1 and exploring EVERYTHING! I love being outdoors with my family. My husband and I love fitness and often try to hike, CrossFit, and run together. I also love yoga and Pure Barre. I adore travelling and have visited 16 countries. I love gardening and finding healthy ways to feed my family. Now you know a little more about ME! I can’t wait to meet each of you!
