Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Desiree Moore
This is my first year at Mercer Middle School and I am thrilled to be here! Here’s a little bit about me. I was born in Landstuhl, Germany (Guten Tag!), but I have spent most of my life living in Chesterfield, Virginia. I went to Christopher Newport University for my undergrad degree, double majoring in Communication Studies and Sociology, while also minoring in Business Management. I recently graduated from George Mason University with my degree in School Counseling and I am currently getting my E.dD in Educational Leadership at Liberty University. (I'm sure by now you can tell that I love school) I discovered my passion for working with youth during my time at CNU. I was the president of a club called iNSPIRE, in which we mentored and tutored students in the Newport News Public Schools. I realized that helping others not only brought joy to my community but also to myself. In my down time, I love to travel and eat. I have been to Japan, Puerto Rico, France, and about 46 out of 50 of the states! I also have six guinea pigs (Harper, Phoenix, Cocoa Puffs, Cheerios, Lemon and Lime) that love to eat carrots and lettuce all day long. Multiculturalism and Wellness are two of my biggest specialties and I am excited to share my knowledge on both topics to the students and staff at Mercer Middle School. I cannot wait to see what the school year will bring!
