Teacher: April Moore
My name is April Moore. This is my seventh year to teach fourth grade at ACS. I have been teaching for 15 years at many different grade levels. I completed the MATM program at Mississippi State University where I received my Masters in Middle-Level Education. I am currently enrolled at MSU where I am working towards my Specialist in Elementary Education. I'm also involved in teaching other educators throughout the year at MUW.
Building critical thinkers and problem solvers is a crucial element in our classroom. In our ever-changing world, we need our students to be ready for careers that do not yet exist. I believe incorporating STREAM in my classroom, along with higher-order thinking activities, allows my students every opportunity to compete in a global economy. I am continually setting high expectations for all of my students, preparing them to become lifelong learners in today's world.Our classroom is engaging, exciting, and encompassing.
Teaching is my passion. Helping children to learn and reach their full potential is my goal. I will work with the students to help them excel in not only in many areas of learning, but also in their walks with Christ.
~I am eager to be in the classroom helping students reach their full potential!
Teacher: Morgan Bergeron
My name is Morgan Bergeron and I teach 5th grade math, science, and religion. This is my third year here at ACS, and my second year to teach 5th grade.
I am originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, where I attended the University of Louisiana and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, with an add-on in Elementary Education, certifying me from PreK-Fifth grade. My husband’s job brought us here to Columbus over the summer of 2017 and that’s when I found Annunciation.
In math, we will perfect our multiplying and dividing skills and use all four math operations with whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. I have been working with Mrs. Cooper to ensure that all of my students will be ready for middle school math. I struggled with math as a child, but it is now my favorite subject to teach. Since I struggled growing up, I now have the passion to help my own students love math and appreciate it more than I did.
In science, we will use the Nancy Larson Curriculum to cover a multitude of topics including Earth’s systems, forces and motion, astronomy, ecosystems, and interactions of matter.
In religion, we will learn about the Sacraments of the Catholic faith, while we also grow in prayer as we move throughout the liturgical year. One of my favorite things that I experience as a religion teacher, is watching my students grow in their relationship with Christ throughout the year. It is truly amazing and makes my heart so full!
It is my joy and passion to educate children, and having the opportunity to share my faith with them along the way is the biggest blessing. I am looking forward to another fantastic school year!
