Kyle-Moore to head TSN
The Teachers Support Network has announced that Sallie Kyle-Moore has been chosen to succeed Lynn Ross as program director.
Kyle-Moore is a 33-year Sonoma resident who attended El Verano Elementary School, Altimira Middle School and Justin-Siena High School in Napa.
Moore holds a BS in child development and family economics from the University of Arizona. She is a former boardmember of the Vintage Festival, the Sonoma International Film Festival and has been active with the Boys & Girls Clubs’ fundraising events and with St. Francis School. She has also worked in development and event planning for Hanna Boys Center.
She has three children, Sydney, Elizabeth and Paige Moore.
TSN offers volunteer resources to Sonoma Valley High School teachers and has received rave reviews from both teachers and volunteers who participate.
TSN was modeled after similar programs in the Bay Area with input from local teachers, school officials and union representatives and was officially launched with the placement of seven volunteers in the classroom in March 2007.
In 2008, TSN joined forces with the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation.
Under Ross, who is leaving TSN to focus on other opportunities, the organization has grown from a starting base of five teachers and the seven original volunteers to a current roster of more than 30 teachers and 50 volunteers.
TSN board president Henry Grause praised Ross’s leadership, noting that, “The success of TSN, its many achievements over the past six years and its success as a vital non-profit organization working in the Sonoma Valley Unified School District system will remain Lynn’s legacy for years to come.”
