Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less.

My name is Vickie Moriarity, and I am originally from Seattle, Washington.  I have been fortunate to live and teach in Arizona, Nebraska, Virginia, and now Kentucky over the last 24 years.   When I first came to Kentucky, I was captivated by the beauty of the Daniel Boone National Forest and the close knit families in Kentucky.  I have been blessed to teach 7th grade language arts at Bath County Middle School since 2006 and hope to finish out my career here. I will be teaching reading, writing, and journalism this year and my first year teaching 6th graders.  I am so excited about this opportunity!


By the time students leave my class, I want them to:
 
  • Develop and enjoy a habit of reading independently every day.
  • Develop and enjoy a habit of writing independently every day.
  • Use appropriate reading strategies to be able to decode and comprehend grade level  texts with 100% accuracy.
  • Analyze both literary and informational text in a way that will help them regardless of the college or career path they choose.
  • Increase their vocabulary.
  • Improve their speaking and listening skills when participating in discussion groups and when giving presentations.
  • Effectively research topics and correctly cite sources using MLA format.

 

I love my job, my students, and serving the Bath County School District
