Hello!  My  name is Kathy Moon and I am proud to be a part of the Deshler Tiger Teaching Staff.  Although I was born and raised in Southern, IL, Tuscumbia has been my home for a number of years.  

My husband is Chet Moon.   We met as co-op students at TVA and the "chemistry" has continued for 34 years.   He is employed by Toray America in Decatur as the director of technical services.  We have two wonderful daughters and a son-in-law who add color to our lives.  Chelsea is a 2010 graduate of DHS.  Ali is a 2013 DHS graduate. 

I love to learn new things, so teaching is fun for me.   I also enjoy traveling, reading, and hanging out with family and friends.  I am really excited about guiding my students along an academic journey into the wonderful world of science this year.
