I hated history before I had the privilege of taking a class from Mr. Moore.  He changed history from memorizing stupid names and dates to the struggles, conflicts & personalities of interesting people who shaped history by their actions.  I'm no "student of history" but I still enjoy reading history thanks to Mr. Moore.  Ms. Bowman, Mr. Iverson and Mr. Moore are the three teachers who had profound and lasting effects on my life.

I always loved history, and then I got to have this fabulous man as a history teacher. My love turned into something so far beyond. His class became my sanctuary, I think. I could hardly wait for history class, and wanted it to be longer. And in addition to  sharing his love of, and passion for history, he was always so calm and peaceful, and so kind. I really needed that. And my love for history endures. Thanks, Mr. M!!
