Teacher Biography

My name is Gloria Moseley, and I am very pleased to be the 4th grade teacher here at Saint Athanasius School. I have continued my education throughout my life, earning a Bachelor's and Master's degrees from various universities in Theology, Education, and Literacy fields. I currently spend my weekends as the Log Cabin Lady at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, teaching young people about the life and times of people long ago! I hope to foster a love of God, and passions both to care for our environment and to serve our worldwide community.
