A Message from Superintendent Moore
June 10, 2013
Dear Colleagues, Staff, Students, Parents and Community Members:
It is with mixed emotions that I write this today to share with you. At this year’s Deming Public Schools/Deming Education Association Annual Awards Ceremony in May, I was recognized by the district for 45 years of service. As I stood on the stage in the Auditorium, I was deeply moved by the standing ovation given me by my peers and colleagues.
I began my career in education at Deming High School in 1967 as a new teacher, fresh out of McMurry College. For the next 23 years I was part of the DHS faculty where I had the great honor of working with young people, my students, and fellow educators. I loved every moment.
Later I was encouraged to go into administration, and I did. As administrator for the last 22 years I have continued my career as an educator, the last nine as superintendent of Deming Public Schools. During all of these years it has been my privilege to work for the students of Luna County, and I appreciate the support of the thousands of parents and countless community members who have supported me over the years.
I have notified the members of the Board of Education that I will be retiring upon completion of my current contract which ends June 30, 2014. In the meantime I look forward with enthusiasm to this coming school year!
