Throughout the year, Le Moyne College will recognize a secondary school partner who is deeply committed to improving educational opportunities for the students they serve. These “heroes,” along with their colleagues, work as tireless advocates to create solutions that provide their students with a chance at a first-class education.
We are pleased to honor Kayley Morse, Le Moyne College class of 2010, as an education hero. She is in her third year teaching U.S. History and AP World History at Oswego High School.
Her love of history and life-long desire to teach makes this her ideal job. “Sharing knowledge and experience with others is my passion,” said Kayley, who majored in history with a concentration in secondary education at Le Moyne. “I wake up every day knowing that I am going to impact my students in some way and I always strive to impact them positively. Whether it is through content or compassion, I want my students to become better and I want to be the one that helps them find success.”
Despite the challenges facing teachers today, Kayley doesn’t let it hinder her love for teaching. “I do what I do because I think it matters. Teachers can make a difference and do make a difference. I want to be a teacher that students remember as caring and as someone who held them to high expectations so they could become a better person.”
You’re an inspiration Kayley – keep up the good work!
