Four new classes and a different lunch aren’t the only major changes that occurred at the start of this semester.
After Mr. Ward left Leesville at the end of first semester, Leesville needed a new administrator to take his place. Fortunately for us, a bright smiled Mrs. Moody joined the Leesville family.
Mrs. Moody came from Needham Broughton High School, where she taught civics and economics and AP Government classes for seven years. She taught AL (Alternate Learning) classes for her last two years.
Before teaching in Wake County, she taught in Charlotte at Independence High School. There she taught civics and economics and world history for six years.
“Teaching ALC classes taught me that the normal school system doesn’t suit all kids, so we really need to help them be successful by giving them what they need.”
No two schools are alike and coming from Broughton to Leesville has been a huge transformation to get used to.
“Everyone is really nice and helpful. I’m slowly getting into the hang of things,” said Mrs. Moody.
Mrs. Moody plans to bring her values she implemented at Broughton to students at Leesville.
“I want to show kids that I can be a disciplinary person without screaming at them. I will still hold all students accountable for their actions while treating them with respect.”
Mrs. Moody’s office is located where Mr. Ward’s old office used to be, downstairs in the Murphy building. She welcomes any student to come and see her for any reason at anytime.
“I am looking forward to meeting all the students. Building relationships with the students is what my job is all about,” said Mrs. Moody.
Students and teachers alike have enjoyed getting to know Mrs. Moody. So far, she has been a great addition to the administrative team.
“She’s proven herself to be very hard working. She’s done a great job getting to know teachers and students. It’s great to have an experienced high school teacher on the administrative team because her knowledge and experience can help our school continue to move forward,” said Dr. Muttillo, principal .
