    Welcome to Spanish 2/3!!

    Check out my video journal from my trip to HONDURAS!
    My name is Laura Lee Moore.  I have been teaching Spanish at various levels, including college and middle school, for 20 years.  I have a B.A. in Spanish (minor in English) from USM (1996) and a M.A.T.L. in Spanish (1999) from USM.  During my undergraduate studies I spent a summer term (1996) in Cuernavaca, México studying the language & culture.  During my stay I had the incredible opportunity to live with a Mexican family.  I have also traveled throughout Honduras on numerous mission trips (2007-2011).
    I have been married to Dr. Jim Moore for 25 years.  We have three daughters, Alex, Kennedy, and Josie, and one grandson named Jackson.  My husband is the director of autism services at Canopy Children's Soultions and adjunct professor of psychology at USM.  Alex is a 2011 Petal graduate .  She completed her B.A. from USM in 2017 and now is a 4th grade ELA teacher at East Hancock Elementary.  Kennedy is a 2017 graduate of Petal HS and is currently studying Math Education as a METP Scholar at Ole Miss. Josie is a third-grade student at Petal Elementary.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, cooking, reading, painting, and watching BBC.  
    I am a competitive powerlifter and a powerliting referee for USPA and USA Powerlifting.  I recently traveled to Las Vegas, NV (July, 2017) to compete in the USPA National Championship Meet in which I placed 1st in Women's Master's division and 2nd in the Women's Open division.  I currently hold an IPL World Record for Women's Master's Deadlift as well as several USPA American & Mississippi State Records.
