Support Candace Leave a comment for Candace

Candace Moy was nominated by her colleague, Lisa Lohman.

"Ms. Moy is unlike any teacher I have ever met," said Lohman. "She has such a caring heart for each one of her students. She started as a third grade teacher, but unfortunately, we had to cut one of the third grade classes.  We were so sad to see her leave. Luckily, a kindergarten class opened, and Candace moved into the role with such ease. She never once complained about the move because she is so dedicated to the school. She is not only an inspiration to her students, but to support staff like myself. Because of her, I strive to be a better paraprofessional and a closer member of our Skyview family!"

This is only the second year I have had the privilege of working with Candice, but she has brought a high level of enthusiasm and energy to our staff! She began teaching 3rd grade last year and switched to kindergarten this year. Not just anyone can teach at high levels in each of those grade levels, but Candice Moy sure does! She treats and loves the students in her class as if they were her own, and she always has a smile and a positive attitude with all the students and teachers in our school! I have heard numerous staff members comment on how they just love her bubbly personality, and that she has truly made a difference in the climate in our building! I definitely see that teaching is a calling for Mrs. Moy and she does a tremendous job following her heart!
