Welcome to Ms. Moore's Class

  • Crystal Moore Welcome to another fantastic year!
    I would like to tell you a little bit about myself.  I knew in 6th grade that I wanted to be a teacher and stayed focused on that goal from that point forward.  I went to school in the Edmonds School District and throughout Middle School and High School I volunteered at my Elementary School.  I attended Western Washington University graduating in 2005 with my Bachelors of Arts in Education and my teaching certificate.  After a couple of years I decided to continue my education and attended Walden University where I earned my Masters in Education.  My most recent accomplishment was earning National Board Certification in 2012.
    I am excited to begin my 10th year of teaching with a new group of first graders. I began working in the Everett School District in 2006 at Whittier Elementary where I taught half day Kindergarten.  In 2007 I went to Garfield Elementary to teach 2nd grade.  I stayed at Garfield for 2 years and then moved to Penny Creek in 2009.  My first year at Penny Creek I taught a 2/3 split class followed by 2nd grade the year after.  I landed in 1st grade in 2011.  I have loved every minute of my teaching career but certainly feel that I have found my home in 1st grade.
    My husband and I were married in 2009. Our first daughter was born in May of 2011.  We welcomed our second daughter in February of 2014.  Our family is rounded out with a 7 year old Jack Russell Terrier.  When I find myself with free time I enjoy sewing and discovering non-traditional ways to use scrapbook paper.
