Moxey has been a teacher with SSD for four years. Prior to that she worked for six years in the New York City Department of Education after earning a master’s degree in deaf education at Columbia University.

Moxey currently works with fourth- and fifth-grade students at Brown. She supervises student teachers, mentors first-year teachers and paraprofessionals, and serves as a data team leader for SSD. She is a member of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Area Leadership Team and the Brown Elementary building leadership team.

Moxey believes in tailoring teaching methods to each individual student. “As teachers we need to meet the students where they are and figure out what works for them. I continuously reevaluate and reflect on my teaching practices and how they are affecting my students,” Moxey said in her interview for Teacher of the Year.

SSD Area Coordinator Kathy Williams said Moxey’s devotion to her profession goes above and beyond her job description. “Emily is committed not only to her students, but to their families as well,” she said. “Emily is one of the best teachers I have ever seen – from instruction to case management – she is truly the best.”

Moxey was selected as one of SSD’s 10 Key to the Classroom Award winners earlier this month. The Key to the Classroom Award honors SSD’s top teachers for their creative approaches to student learning, innovative programming and commitment to student success.

Moxey will represent SSD next year in the statewide competition for Regional Teacher of the Year, a program sponsored by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Regional winners go on to compete for Missouri State Teacher of the Year.
