Moss has served as an administrator at West Bay Elementary since the school reopened its doors. She has lived in Bay County for 32 years, and even attended the very school she works for as a student in fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. She says it is an honor to serve the area, and she is excited to meet other exceptional administrators across the state.

Moss says some of the biggest challenges for children in our schools are problems with emotional support and classroom engagement. She says that if parents want to take an active role in their child's education, don't hesitate to try to get involved with the school. This makes education a team effort to get kids excited to learn.

She also says communicating with your child a little bit each day can make a huge difference.

"Kids will open up, they just need someone who will listen," Moss said.
