Welcome New Staff

We have been very busy at the Moore School wrapping up the 2022-2023 school year and beginning preparations for the 2023-2024 school year.  As part of those preparations, we have been conducting interviews for several open positions at the school.  I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce the Moore School community to our new staff members.

Dorothy Franchini is our new Assistant Principal.  Mrs. Franchini has five years of experience as an Assistant Principal in the Raymond School District along with several years of experience as a classroom teacher.  She currently serves as a mentor to new Assistant Principals in New Hampshire. Dorothy will begin her work with us in early July.

The Moore School will have three kindergarten classes this fall.  Our new kindergarten teachers are Amy Latini and Jessica Webster-Jones who will both be joining us from Lamprey River Elementary School.  Mrs. Latini has ten years of teaching experience ranging from preschool to grade 3.  Mrs. Jones comes to us with 8 years of experience teaching grades K-5. 

Kristen Nivison also has experience in grades K-5.  She will be joining us for her 8th year in the classroom full time as a third grade teacher.  Prior to her full time teaching positions, Mrs. Nivison spent some time as a long term substitute at the Moore School.  Welcome back Mrs. Nivison!

We will welcome two new grade 6 teachers to the Moore School this fall. Brad Harmon will be joining us for his first year of teaching sixth grade mathematics and science.  Mr. Harmon completed his student teaching experience at McKelvie Intermediate School in Bedford this spring as he completed his Master of Education program.  Brad also has experience as a residential counselor.  Kyle Widness is our new sixth grade language arts and social studies teacher.  Mr. Widness has eleven years of experience teaching at the middle school level.  Kyle also enjoys coaching and advising student clubs/organizations that focus on service to others.

Tamsyn Walker and Kathleen Neville will be the new additions to our 7th and 8th grade team.  Ms. Walker has been teaching middle and high school English language arts classes since 2004.  She most recently taught at Timberlane Regional High School and is looking forward to getting back into the middle school language arts classroom.  Ms. Neville has a wealth of experience developing science curriculum and spent time as a long-term substitute before teaching 7th and 8th grade science in Henniker. You may have seen Ms. Neville at the Amoskeag fishways where she worked for fifteen years as a naturalist and education coordinator.

We have two special educators who will be new to the Moore School staff next year as well.  Melissa Roy is completing her Master of Education at Southern New Hampshire University this August.  Miss Roy spent the last year as a clinical teaching assistant/intern in grades K-4 at Northwest Elementary School in Manchester.  Prior to that, she was a paraprofessional in the Concord School District.  Kathryn Sampson completed her Master of Education in 2020.  Since then, she has been working with students in grades preK-2 as a classroom teacher and special educator. 

Bailey Powers began her teaching career in Rhode Island in 2017 after earning her Master of Arts in Teaching from Rhode Island School of Design.  Mrs. Powers is relocating to New Hampshire and will be our art teacher for grades K-8.   

The Library Media Specialist is Heather Levasseur.  Mrs. Levasseur began her career as an elementary classroom teacher in 2009 in London, UK.  She relocated back to the United States in 2018 and has been a Library Media Specialist in the Farmington School District ever since. 

Karen Parr will join our reading team for the year as a reading interventionist.  Ms. Parr has been a grade 5 classroom teacher, adjunct professor and reading specialist. Most recently Ms. Parr was a reading specialist in the Sanborn Regional School District.

Lastly, we would like to welcome Brittany Yasin to the Moore School.  Mrs. Yasin will be sharing the school nurse position with Mrs. Megan this year.  Mrs. Yasin has been a registered nurse for the past 9 years in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and recently obtained her School Nurse certification through the New Hampshire Department of Education.

We are excited to welcome these new staff members who bring a collective 100+ years of experience in education to the Moore School.  We are looking forward to working with all of them to provide the best possible educational experiences for Moore School students and families.
