As an English/language arts teacher at Alpha Omega Academy, Kayla Moffitt works alongside students throughout their courses by grading and providing constructive feedback for future success. One of her favorite parts of her day is when she gets to speak with parents about their child’s growth.
“I love when a parent is a big part of their child’s education,” Moffitt said. “Knowing that a student of mine has support at home means the world to me.”
Born and raised in Arkansas, Moffitt grew up playing sports and was a two-time basketball state champion in high school. She later graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English from Arkansas Tech University and a master’s degree in English education from Western Governors University. Today, she remains in Arkansas, where she and her husband serve as youth pastors at their church. Together, they enjoy kayaking, trying out new places to eat, and spending time with their families.
Some of her favorite combinations in life are the story of Ruth and Boaz in the Bible, roast and potatoes, tacos and cheese dip, and chocolate chip cookies and milk. Her most treasured possession is a notebook her mother gave her for her graduation.
“She wrote a note in it every day from my first day of kindergarten to my last day of high school,” Moffitt said. “It is now weathered from the many times of thumbing through it, but it is so special to me.”
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12).
