Teacher: Mrs. Kristy Moore

6th Grade Language Arts/Social Studies

Joe P. Eblen Intermediate School



A little about me...

        My name is 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 and have made Leicester, NC, my home for the past twenty years. I attended both Erwin Middle and Erwin High Schools.  I started teaching 5th grade at Leicester Elementary and this will be my seventh 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 the Erwin community.

       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."  This year I am extremely excited to be partnering with Emily Gonzales, who will be teaching math and science.

        I am a very proud mother of a wonderful daughter who recently graduated from the best college in the country- The University of Carolina at Chapel Hill- GO HEELS!!! In  my spare time, I love spending time with my family, gardening, walking, traveling, camping, and relaxing at the lake.

             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!
