A little about me...

          Hello!  I'm Kristy Moore and I am extremely excited to be teaching 6th grade language arts and social studies at Joe P. Eblen Intermediate this year!  I am an Asheville native- I grew up in west Asheville, lived in Leicester for twenty years, and now I'm back to my roots in west Asheville :) I attended both Erwin Middle and Erwin High Schools.  I began teaching 5th grade at Leicester Elementary and this will be my tenth year teaching 6th grade at Eblen Intermediate.  I am so happy to be giving back to the community that I cherish and that has so greatly blessed me.  I have a B.S. in Business Administration, but made the decision to go back to school and obtain my teacher's license after realizing how much I loved children and teaching.  I feel so fortunate to be a part of the talented staff of Eblen Intermediate School and my beloved Erwin community.
On a personal note, I am a very proud mother of an amazing daughter- Hannah, who graduated from the best college in the country- The University of Carolina at Chapel Hill- GO HEELS!!! I am VERY EXCITED that in January 2021 I will become a grandmother! In 2017, I married a wonderful man, Mark. Not only did I gain a husband, but two awesome stepsons, Jeffrey and JT.  In  my spare time, I love spending time with my family, decorating, gardening, walking, traveling, camping, and relaxing at the lake.

I believe that every child has a special gift and I take pride in discovering that individuality.  I have high expectations in my classroom and I enjoy incorporating hands-on and technology driven extension activities that capture the interest and challenge my students.  With that in mind, I also believe that a child remembers how you made them feel rather than what you say.  Your child is "one of my kids" in my class "family."  I am so blessed to be teaching with my awesome partner, Emily Gonzales, who teaches math and science.  We make a great team!

 It is my goal that this year be the best ever for your child!  Please feel free to contact me at,  or my partner, Emily Gonzales, at   with any concerns or questions you may have at the number or email address listed above.  I respond faster to email.  I look forward to this year with you and your child!
