WS/FCS Beginning Teacher Spotlight
The WS/FCS Office of New Teacher Induction supports all teachers during their first three years in the classroom. This is the 12th in a series spotlighting some of the teachers nominated by their mentors.
MAY 28, 2021 – Adam Moore teaches Social Studies at East Forsyth High.
Here is what his mentor, Jennifer Watson, who is the Instructional Facilitator at East Forsyth had to say:
“As his colleague for more than 3 years, I have had the pleasure of witnessing first hand his exemplary skills as a civics educator. His dedication to his art as a public servant is unparalleled.”
“As the school’s instructional Facilitator, I can honestly say that Mr. Moore is one of the most talented teachers on our staff. During his brief career, Mr. Moore has taught the Advanced Placement course in United States Government and Politics as well as Honors and Standard level Civics and Economics classes.”
“He handles the challenge of teaching very different academic achievement levels with incredible skill. He demonstrates a remarkable rapport with his students (past and present) and possesses a confident personality that draws students into his lessons.”
“I consider his ability to connect with students on a personal level while maintaining clear academic expectations for them to be his greatest strength.”
“I am also impressed by Mr. Moore’s active involvement in the Kernersville community. Adam, a former Eagle Scout, serves as Scoutmaster for Troop 944 and Assistant Camp Director at Raven Knob Scout Reservation.”
“His commitment to local politics is equally impressive. He serves as a campaign manager for the Kernersville mayor as well as an active member of the Executive Committee for the Forsyth County Democratic Party. As an Executive Board Member of the Forsyth County Association of Educators, Adam works tirelessly to advocate for our teachers and students.”
“Adam Moore demonstrates on a daily basis the positive power of active citizenship and public service. It has been an absolute honor to watch Adam grow into the epitome of a teacher-leader. Mr. Moore not only served as the Professional Learning Team chair, leading weekly meetings with his Civics and Economics colleagues, but also as an influential part of the new AP teacher cohort we have at East Forsyth.”
“He consistently focuses on how to maximize student learning and engagement by not only attending numerous workshops but also delivering technology and instructional professional development opportunities for our teachers as well as district social studies teachers.”
“In addition, Mr. Moore advises the Young Democrats and Republicans Club and the Interact Club, coaches the General Knowledge Academic Team at East Forsyth, and co-directs the East Forsyth Finance Academy. As many great leaders do, he leads by example.”
“Again, it is my pleasure to offer Mr. Moore my highest recommendation.”
