The Floyd County Schools District announced last week that two new assistant principals were recently hired.
Matt Moon of Belfry was hired as the new assistant principal at Adams Middle and Rebecca Morrison of Kite was selected for that position at Betsy Layne Elementary.
Superintendent Danny Adkins said in a press release, “These two bring high energy and incredible passion for individualizing education.”
Morrison has 15 years of experience as an educator. In addition to teaching math, she has been a member of the district Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment (CIA) team, the STEAM team, the accomplished teaching cohort and worked with Gear Up. She also obtained an education specialist degree during this time.
“This busy mother of triplets is inspired by her sons and her parents to make a positive difference in the world,” the press release said. “Rebecca’s goal is to continue to grow and learn more about how to serve students through STEM education and other initiatives.”
Moon is new to Floyd County Schools but he has been an educator for 15 years. He graduated from Morehead State University and has an education specialist degree from the University of Kentucky.
“Matt hopes to support and create programs that allow students access to deeper learning opportunities and to help students showcase their creations and productions,” the press release said. “Matt is excited to meet the students and work with his colleagues to create the best school experience for each individual student.”
These appointments are among several administrative changes that have been announced in Floyd County Schools this summer.
“We have had several changes in administration for this school year but we have a great balance of the knowledge from experience and the excitement from being new in a role,” Adkins said.
He said this new year will be a “turning point” for Floyd County Schools.
