Hello students and parents! We are going to be working together to do learning via online programs for the next few months. I'll be right here, just an email away (mooreje2@pwcs.edu),  if you need help.

My name is Dr. Jana Moore, and I am one of the ESOL teachers. This year I am teaching 6th Grade Reading Strategies, as well as co-teaching with Mrs. Morse for 8th Grade Language Arts.

This is my first year at Parkside Middle School. Before this, I taught for four years in Hawaii after spending many years in Japan. My husband and our family are quite happy to be in Virginia after all those years! I look forward to meeting all of you and working with your learners to help them improve their skills.
