"Ms. Wendy Moore has been a teacher/librarian at Reeltown High School for 26 years. She is always willing to help students, staff, and parents," said Stockdale. "She takes pride in her work and loves her school."
Ms. Moore tutors students in the library daily. She is an integral part of the RHS faculty and serves as a Medication Assistant on the CRT and Narcan teams. She is always willing to help the school nurse give medications and complete paperwork for both Reeltown Elementary School and Reeltown High School.
Ms. Moore is always thinking of others. She consistently puts others' needs ahead of her own. Ms. Moore keeps supplies in the library for students to use to complete projects. She places a snack bucket with extra items for students who do not have snacks or money to purchase snacks. Ms. Moore is in charge of the school yearbook. She always tries to make sure students have their pictures taken. If students who are seniors do not have funds to have their cap and gown pictures made, Ms. Moore takes those pictures herself, so all students are taken care of.
She encourages and mentors students.
"She has helped countless students move from not loving to read to reading all the time," said Stockdale. "This helps them with their college coursework. She frequently helps RHS students with college applications and recommendations to help them further their educational careers. Former students are always coming back to see her."
Ms. Moore distributes and takes up all Chromebooks each school year and works with the technology department to ensure all students' Chromebooks are repaired and working correctly. Ms. Moore meets all those needs and more for Reeltown High School while battling a cancer diagnosis.
