Written by Tom Walker on June 7, 2021
This Wednesday, June 9 at 9am, after our state news from Jim Saunders of the News Service of Florida, our guest will be Dr. Harriet Moore.
Dr. Moore in February was named the first Director of Innovation and Equity for the Sarasota County School District. In her new role, she is facilitating the implementation of cultural responsibility and training throughout the district, chairing the District Equity Committee, and guiding innovative approaches to different instructional delivery models—including virtual, blended, and face-to-face learning—for students, among other key responsibilities.
Dr. Moore has been an educator for over 20 years. She received her Master of Education Degree from National-Louis University in 2001, her Educational Specialist Degree in 2005, and Doctor of Education Degree in 2006, both from Argosy University, and the Leadership Certificate of Completion from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2015.
Before that she was the Principal of McIntosh Middle School for 9 years.
She has served on the Executive Board of the SOAR Learning Center, and the School Based Administrators Association, and is a member of many other local and national organizations. She is a native of Sarasota, and the proud mother of one son, Joseph Aaron Haygood, and serves as an Elder in the Trinity Christian Fellowship Center.
