MOS Master Highlight: April Moore-Jones

Being a teacher means going above and beyond to help your students succeed. Sometimes, that means giving yourself additional skills to gain a deeper understanding of the content you teach. April Moore-Jones did just that, by earning her MOS Master certification.

April is a teacher at Northwood High School, located in Saltville, VA. She’s been at her school for thirteen years, with the last nine of those years teaching business classes. Her schedule includes teaching Accounting, Principles of Business and Marketing, Office Administration, Design Multimedia & Webtech, Economics and Personal Finance, and Computer Information Systems.  And as if that weren’t enough, April is also the yearbook adviser, FBLA adviser (with over one-third of the school being members), and adviser for the school student-managed website,

When asked how her MOS Master certification has helped her, April commented, “I have benefited from earning a MOS Master certification by telling and showing my kids the importance of certification.  We look at to view jobs in our area that require MOS for the job position, showing the importance of certification. I, myself, will be teaching a MOS adjunct class for Virginia Highlands Community College in the spring to Northwood and a neighboring school, Chilhowie. Without my certifications in MOS, I would not have been eligible to expand my teaching horizons!”

Congratulations April, on all your hard work and dedication!
