Moczygemba YHS teacher of the year

Yorktown High School teacher Shirley Moczygemba was a homebody and cried every time she had to go to school. Mind you, she only went to school one day a week during cotton picking season.

“I played school when I was little but I did not want to go to school. I went to school on Thursday and one of my brothers went to pick up our homework. I was the middle child of five. [My parents made sure] that we did our homework,” Moczygemba said.

That soon changed after her first grade teacher, Mrs. Simpson, gave her the love of learning and a desire, later on, to give others that same love.

Moczygemba said, “Mrs. Simpson gave me the feeling that school could be my second home.”
