Mr. Moore, Brusly Middle School
Mr. Earvin Moore is a special education teacher at Brusly Middle School. Currently receiving his alternative certification through Louisiana’s iTeach program, Mr. Moore is no stranger to saving the world. He’s entering the teaching profession from a background as a U.S. Marshal! We are so thankful that he did. He's been making WBR Awesome ever since!
Brusly Middle School (BMS) principal, Mrs. Taya Loupe, is thrilled to have Mr. Moore on her team! She is most impressed at how dedicated he is in working specifically with students at the middle school level. She says, “He is a wonderful role model and serves as a mentor to many of our young male and female students. Mr. Moore is a team player and willing to go the extra mile to help assist fellow colleagues, students, and administration.” She goes on proudly to describe how he is filled with optimism and always wears a smile!
Mr. Moore started briefly at Lukeville Upper Elementary School as a PE teacher, and in his short time there, he’d already left a huge impact! Assistant Principal Kendra Oubre remarked, “Mr. Moore had a genuine love for the kids at LUES. The students absolutely loved going to P.E.! He built lasting relationships with the staff and was always willing to lend a helping hand for whatever reason without complaint.” Mrs. Oubre went on to say how sad the LUES family was to see him go, but how thankful they are that he’s still with WBR! She especially loves that , “now he gets to make a difference in the lives of students he once served at Lukeville”, as students go directly to BMS from there. Mrs. Oubre had more to say when describing what an asset he is to students through teaching and through sports, “Underneath that football player exterior is a kind, gentle, and humble spirit that truly has a heart for students! He will always be a part of the Lukeville family!” WOW! That describes Mr. Moore perfectly!
His Brusly Middle School colleagues feel the same way about Mr. Moore! Mrs. Pamela Thomisee said, “Mr. Moore's compassion for his students overflows daily. He is always kind and uplifting.” Mrs. Kimberly Revelle agrees, “Coach Moore is someone who the students look up to and have a lot of respect for! His presence in a classroom makes a difference.”
Though we weren’t able to contact a student, it was awesome hearing about Mr. Moore’s obvious rapport with students through his colleague’s eyes. Coach Thomas of Brusly High School said, “Mr. Moore is one of the hardest working, most selfless people I’ve ever been around. When we go to events, it’s always cool to see all the middle schoolers run across the room to find him ready to share a story or have their turn at their own special handshake with Coach Moore. His ability to build these relationships has established such a strong presence in both the middle and high school.”
Congratulations, Mr. Moore! No doubt about it, it is the privilege and honor of West Baton Rouge Parish Schools that you chose to shine your light on our students through the teaching profession!
