Meet a New Teacher

Georgia Moses, Teaching Fellow

 

Q: Describe yourself in three words.

A: Outgoing, goofy, and ambitious.

Q: What inspired you to teach?

A: I've had impactful teachers throughout each phase of my education. Mrs. Daley pushed me out of my shell, and in the 2nd grade, I transitioned from being a quiet kid to a social one. My 8th-grade science teacher, Mrs. Feeney, taught me that working hard and embracing your curiosity is cool. Mr. Bourassa, my 10th-grade English teacher, sparked in me a love for reading and confidence in my writing. I have felt drawn to teaching ever since I was young! Throughout my career development, I have started to understand this is because of the incredible teachers I had throughout my life who I have respected, trusted, and admired. I hope to be the same for my students!

Q: Why Trinity?

A: I'm drawn to Trinity because of the school's undeniably strong sense of community. This quality closely aligns with what I value and the type of professional environment I want to be in. I can't wait to be a part of the Trinity community this school year!

Q: What are you most looking forward to for the next school year?

A: I'm so excited to get to know my lead teacher and all of my students! I find spending time with others so energizing and cannot wait to be surrounded by excellent teachers and kids all day.

Q: What would be the soundtrack to your classroom?

A: A mix of Fleetwood Mac, ABBA, and Taylor Swift. 

Q: What do you love doing in your spare time?

A: I love to spend quality time with my loved ones, read novels, go for runs, walks, bike rides, listen to live music and eat new and delicious foods.

Q: What is the last movie or TV show you watched?

A: I just saw In the Heights, and it was my first time in a movie theater since the pandemic started. I didn't realize how much I missed going to the movies until I was there with a bag of popcorn and Milk Duds in hand! 

Q: Tell us about your favorite teacher.

A: My 2nd-grade teacher Mrs. Daley is my all-time favorite teacher! Before second grade, I was an incredibly shy kid who didn't like doing anything without my parents. My mom would have to run alongside me at my soccer games. That's how shy I was! When the school year started, Mrs. Daley slowly but surely helped me out of my shell, and that was the year I became the outgoing and confident person I am. She taught me that being yourself is the most important thing! That is a lesson I hope to pass on to my students at Trinity.

Q: What's your favorite Austin landmark?

A: I'm from New England, and this school year will be my first time living in Austin! I can't wait to get recommendations from students, teachers, and parents on where to go and what to see!
