Maya Rengifo – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS’s science department is saying farewell to Advanced Placement (AP) chemistry teacher Alicia Moody.
Moody started at LRHS in 2001 and will complete her 33 years of teaching by the end of this school year.
The AP Chemistry program that she started in 2006 will be taken over by chemistry teacher Tammy Harper.
“I have loved my time here at the Ranch, the entire science staff have been awesome to work with over the past twenty years,” said Moody. “Many of my former students have sent messages over the years letting me know how well they performed in college after taking one or more of my chemistry classes.
“I feel I am leaving a legacy of a rigorous chemistry program for LRHS chemistry teachers and future students,” said Moody.
Bio-Chemistry club President senior Sydney Granack said, “I have had Moody for two years for Chemistry and AP Chemistry. She has been one of the biggest influences over my love for science, thanks to her I’m excited to pursue a degree in the sciences in college!”
