Teacher honored during Teacher Appreciation

Local teacher honored - The second grade gifted class at Northgrade Elementary in Lake Worth is learning through eating.

The sandwich of choice, two slices of bread smothered with butter, with a couple of slices of bologna and a pickle. This project is one of many teacher Linda Moore does to encourage fun learning.

But those fun activities will soon be coming to an end because Ms. Moore will be retiring.

A former student wrote us a letter about how much she learned from this teacher.

Fifth grader Katelyn Grozek told us "She does more than teaching. Ms. Moore enriches kids' lives by making it fun applesauce, peanut butter and let's us think outside the box."

Linda Moore was flattered by Katelyn's letter. "The fact that she put it down on paper it's a real honor, a real honor and I am appreciative."

Ms. Moore has spent some of her 30 years of teaching in Istanbul, Turkey, in Venezuela, in Michigan, and in Florida.

She told us, "I want to engage them about being curious about the world. The world is getting smaller and they need to know where they live in the whole scope of things and all of the different cultures."

She also has a web site dedicated to her students.

After retiring this school year, Ms. Moore will travel to Russia. "I am going on a cruise in the summer and I arranged so that I will be gone on the first day of school because I knew that it would be hard."

Linda Moore is a teacher who will not be forgotten.
