Meet Ms. Kelsey Moore

E-mail: Kelsey.Moore@sfasu.edu

My name is Kelsey Moore, and I am so excited to become part of the SFA Charter School family. Aside from being a teacher, I also am a mom to a sweet and spunky little boy. I graduated from SFA with a Bachelor of Science in child development and family studies, and a minor in early childhood education. My goal for my classroom is to build a love for learning and instill the belief that my students can do anything they set their minds to do. I’m looking forward to a wonderful school year.

Meet Ms. Tiffany Carr

E-mail: Tiffany.Carr@sfasu.edu

Welcome to first grade! My name is Tiffany Carr, and I'm so excited to be joining the SFA Charter School family. My husband and our three boys have recently moved to Nacogdoches, and we are so excited to be part of this community. I graduated from the University of Arkansas with an early childhood education degree in 2008. I have taught prekindergarten, kindergarten and second grade.

Most recently, I've been a stay-at-home mom to my boys. I'm beyond excited to be back in the classroom and have the opportunity to invest in my students’ lives. I love spending time with family and friends and doing anything outdoors. My goal for my classroom is to create a safe place for building relationships and a positive learning environment. I can't wait meet you and your child and get this year started.
