Faye Moss

Faye Moss

Certificated Teacher/Sylvan Certified Teacher

People call me the Caesar Milan of children. “The child whisperer” echoes throughout my 8 years of teaching. And I know what you’re thinking… I did not give myself the nickname, but I love it! The goal in life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. My gift is being a champion for all learners. Giving every scholar confidence in their abilities, perseverance in life, and accepting that they are capable of anything. “Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.” – Rita Pierson
