Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Mosher, or Miss Molly as some of her students with language delays call her, is entering her 10th year at Trailside Middle School. She is just as proud to be a member of the Timber Wolf pack as she was when she helped open the school. As she begins her 19th year with LCPS, she reflects upon the hats she has worn, first as a self-contained English teacher, then the last 16 years as a teacher of students with autism.
She began her teaching career after graduating from American University with a degree in elementary and special education. She then taught in private residential and public special education settings. She has accrued over 30 hours of graduate work in teaching students with special needs and two classes shy of obtaining h masters in special education from George Mason University. She has her certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis.
Ms. Mosher was nominated by Trailside for Shenandoah University Teacher of the Year as one of 11 finalists. Although she wasn't chosen as THE finalist, just being nominated was good enough for her!
Ms. Mosher is a teacher consultant for the Northern Virginia Writing Project and a board member of Project Write in the Shenandoah Valley.
Living "in the country" with her family and surrounded by her many dogs, cats, horses and feathered friends, suits Ms. Mosher just fine!
