Editor’s Note: This is the third in a series on north Okaloosa County Teachers of the Year.

CRESTVIEW — Tulsa Moore is quite a multi-tasker: She teaches computer-based curriculum at Shoal River Middle School and is the school's media specialist, the school's webmaster, and tackles other duties as needed.

 "I do whatever the school needs me to," she said.

Moore spends one period in the school's media center, cataloging or organizing bookshelves.

"What I enjoy the most is talking to students about books and helping them pick out a book they would enjoy," she said.

 Moore teaches several levels of IT education. 

"The way we divide our classes here is year one, year two and year three," she said. The first year is an introduction to computers. The second year helps students earn high school certifications in learning to use Microsoft programs like Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The third year involves web design, which students can use for high school credit.
