TEACHER OF THE WEEK
Kathy Moreno: 1st Grade Teacher
My name is Kathy Moreno and I am honored to be the teacher of the week this week! It was amazing to see how many students I have taught at Chavez when I was given the award! I had students represented in 1st-5th grade! I also have many students who come back to see me when there are special events! This puts a big smile on my face! It has been a blessing to call Chavez my home!
I graduated from The University of Texas at Dallas with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I have been in education for 9 years and all of those years have been at Chavez! I have taught 3rd, 4th and 1st grade. I am currently teaching 1st grade and I love every one of my first graders! It is a fun age! I love being involved at Chavez and currently serve on the PTA board as the Events chair! I love helping plan activities that bring our Chavez students and families together!
I have been married to my husband, Raphael, for almost 11 years (coming up in March)! We have an amazing daughter, Ryleigh, who is in first grade here at Chavez! Both my husband and I grew up in the Carrollton Farmers Branch area and liked it so much we stayed and currently live in Carrollton. It is close to both sides of our families!
When I am not teaching I play soccer (both indoor and outdoor). I also coach Pink Ladies FC (yes I am a BIG Grease fan!) with my husband. It is my daughter’s soccer team and we have been coaching it for 2 years and have enjoyed it very much! My daughter is also involved in dance three days a week so when we are not on the pitch we are at the dance studio. We enjoy spending time as a family and taking care of our pets, 2 dogs (Mr. Peabody and Roxie) and a cat (Chewy). Oh, and I cannot forget the two fish, Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer. We also love watching Texas Longhorn’s football and Dallas Cowboy’s football (SNIFF)!
I am a Chavista for life and am honored to be this week’s teacher of the week! Go Eagles!
