Retirement: Kristina Moody

Kristina Moody has been in education all of her life – 18 years as a student and 29 years as an educator and in between years as an involved parent in education. She graduated from Silver City High School when desks had ink wells and were screwed down to the floor in rigid rows. She later graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in education and from the University of New Mexico with a master’s degree in special education.

Her first years as a teacher were in Utah and Arizona where she was an itinerant teacher of students with visual impairments. After taking time off to raise four children, she returned to teaching in APS in special education.

She taught at Sierra Vista, Stapleton, Valle Vista, and Chamiza elementaries. She served as head teacher at the last two schools. Recently, she has been an IEP specialist for six years. She has been thinking of retirement for a few years but her friends and co-workers have been able to talk her out of it until this year. She will be greatly missed by many.
