Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Noreena Bender

Welcome to Moore Middle School! Thia year is my 30th year teaching 6th grade for 26 years, 25 of them at Moore. I am married to Mr. Bender, the wonderful Lead Custodian at Moore, and have two amazing adult children, who both went to Crafton, Moore, REV, and then college.  I am very active and love hiking, kayaking, biking and yoga! I also love reading (historical fiction and fantasy are my faves), watching college football (Go Ohio State Buckeyes!) and I love our planet, so I try to conserve, recycle, reuse and eat organic.

I am your English and Social Studies teacher.  I am also the GATE Site Coordinator, CJSF Advisor and a member of  Moore's Leadership  team.  I LOVE teaching 6th grade, especially Ancient Civilizations. My favorite thing about teaching is creating a fun, engaging, creative classroom where students feel empowered to invest in their own learning.  Here's to amazing school year!
