L.P. Miles Elementary School paraprofessional and parent liaison Khalea Moore has been nominated for the 2019-2020 national LifeChanger of the Year award.
“Educating students gives me the most joy,” said Moore, who was also a Students First Award finalist in the recent APyeS! Awards. “I truly believe that I am walking in God’s purpose each and every day I greet my students. Education to me is our biggest weapon of defense.”
Moore was nominated by Deborah Lewis, the grandparent of a student, for the support and guidance she provides for students.
“Her charisma, words of encouragement, and dedication to the young people she serves are impeccable,” said Lewis. “She is truly somebody who not only say she cares but shows it in her actions. Ms. Moore has given countless hours before and after school to help tutor my granddaughter, who struggles in reading. Last school year, she was able to help her move one grade level up toward reading at her grade level.”
In her role as part-time parent liaison, Moore coordinates and facilitates innovative programs to engage Miles parents and families. Lewis says her charismatic personality enables Moore to communicate effectively with Title I parents and non-profit organizations.
Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, LifeChanger of the Year recognizes and rewards the very best K-12 educators and school district employees across the United States who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.
Winners are announced via surprise award ceremonies held at their schools. The grand prize finalists will also be honored at a national awards ceremony in April 2020 in Florida, where the grand-prize winner will be revealed.
