Congratulations Ms. Laura Moore of Quartzite School, our October Super Teacher!
"Ms. Moore starts her day by getting ready her brother who is mentally disabled, whom she cares for him by herself. Once she gets him to a day provider she goes straight to the school to drive a van for our special needs children whom have difficulty riding a bus. This at times can be overwhelming for teachers and aids to get to the school but Ms. Moore does it with a smile. Then off she goes to teach her 1st graders with inter active teaching. Most of these students come from homes that are on wheels the kind most people use for recreational as camping trips. Family's that may have adults and children I've seen up to 7 people living because they can not afford permanent housing. Ms. Moore makes sure not one of these children go without supplies. Last week our PTA had a squencher sale she made sure every child had out of her own pocket. After school she helps with driving the van once again. You would think it would be the end of the day for her but no! She goes and picks up her brother then goes back to the school to prepare for her class the next day. " ~Quartzsite PTA
