New teacher Moore brings experience to job

   Students in shop or drafting have been learning the name Dave Moore, the new instructor in those classes.  Others will already know him from his time in the Board Office.  Either way, Mr. Moore is certainly not unlearned in his field.

   “I have been teaching for 21 years, and I was in administration for six,” Moore says.

   Moore was an equally dedicated student, graduating first from North Marion High School, then Fairmont State University and Marshall University.  His favorite subject was always drafting.

   “I like to design and build homes, and I like architecture and hands-on work,” he explains.

   After graduating, Moore began his teaching career.  He was teaching in Virginia when he received a request to bring his expertise to Ripley High.

   He now spends the school days setting up lessons and demonstrations for his classes.  Out of school, he enjoys woodworking, fishing, and hunting.  He is married and has two kids.

   Fun fact:  one of his own children is Logan Moore, who graduated last year and was on the newspaper staff.

   Moore is looking forward to the rest of this year, in the school and community alike.

   “I like that it’s a small town where everyone seems to know each other,” he says.  “It’s just a great place to live.”
