February Teacher of the Month: Carol Moore

Each month, Marshall ISD celebrates the outstanding contributions of our campus faculty to the overall educational experience of our students. These professionals work countless extra hours at home, on weekends, and over holiday breaks with one focus in mind -- to make MISD and their campus Marshall Proud and Maverick Strong for our students.

The Teacher of the Month for February 2018 at Marshall Junior High School, as selected by Principal, Mrs. Yolonda Martin, is Carol Moore, ELA teacher.

"Mrs Moore came to the junior high under the most unusual situation," said Mrs. Martin in her nomination of Mrs. Moore. "She has spent her whole career being a choir teacher and thoroughly enjoyed working with her musical talents and bringing positivity to everyone through student vocals. However, she is ELA certified and MJHS needed an English teacher. Mrs Moore stepped up BIG and has taken the reins to develop her own pathway to the classroom from the choir risers. We are so proud of what she has been able to do for her students at MJHS ‚Äčand so happy that a path lead her here with us."
