I taught with Mary in Highlandville for 16 years. She was a wonderful example of a caring teacher and a good Christian woman. I will always remember her fondly.

Mrs. Moore was my third grade teacher when we first moved to Highlandville. She was just the best teacher and role model. She took extra steps to help me adjust to the new school and to my parents separation. She was such a bright light for me during a difficult time, I will always be grateful to her and remember her kindness.
