Teacher of the Year at CRHS

David Moore

As a science teacher and Department Chair at Caesar Rodney High School, David has 24 years teaching experience. David received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology Education from the University of Delaware and a Master's degree in Science Education from Delaware State University.

I guess what has kept me in the teaching profession is what I call the ‘light bulb moments.’ The moment when a student finally, after periods of struggle, gets the in-formation or better yet when a student discovers that they can achieve success even though at first they believed that they wouldn't.”
