2017 Instructor of the Year: Rich Moore

In the last decade Rich Moore has taught a plethora of Nashvillians how to play guitar,NCE Spring 17 classes-163 fiddle, and more at Nashville Community Education. NCE is grateful for Rich’s years of dedicated, reliable, quality instruction. Rich’s guitar classes are consistently full and enjoyed by our students. We rest easy knowing they are in capable, supportive hands. We also appreciate Rich’s positive demeanor and easy-going attitude. He makes students and staff feel at ease even on the most stressful of days.

Rich at front of classroomThis year we have worked closely with Rich to produce our pilot Spanish for Educators courses – a partnership with the MNPS Office of English Learners to allow MNPS employees to learn Spanish specifically related to the classroom in an effort to better communicate with students and families that have recently immigrated to the U.S. Rich recently retired from his day-job as a Spanish instructor for MNPS and actually spent much of his childhood growing up in South America. Thanks to his work many MNPS teachers now feel more comfortable approaching parents and students. The amount of time and energy he spent on this class did not go unnoticed by us and we appreciate all he did.

Staff and RichEvery day we get to work with Rich is an honor, but we wanted to give him special praise by naming him the 2017 Instructor of the Year for his devotion to our program, our students, and our city.

Thank you Rich for helping us enrich the diverse fabric of Nashville!
