Welcome to Mrs. Moran's Kindergarten Class Page

Hello! My Name is Mrs. Moran and we are the "Cool Cats" Kindergarten class at Gravely Elementary. This will be my 9th year teaching Kindergarten at Gravely. My 2 kids are Gravely graduates and are now both in college so this is my first year as an empty nester. My husband and I live in Haymarket in the house he grew up in. I attended James Madison University (Go Dukes!) and have been working in the Early Childhood Field for 25 years. I love teaching Kindergarten, taking hikes, reading and going to the beach.


Be Safe, Be Kind and Have Fun!
