Ms. Palace is from Hunter, New York.  She holds a Bachelor's degree in  Psychology and a Master's degree in Deaf and Hearing Impaired Education from S.U.N.Y. at Geneseo.  She has 18 years of teaching experience.  Ms. Palace enjoys hiking, biking, snow skiing, travelling, gardening, and cooking.  The thing she enjoys most about teaching is watching the progress her students make through consistency, a positive approach and a language rich environment.  Ms. Palace has two grown up sons; one lives in Chicago and the other lives in Shangai, China. She is extremely happy that her son Zachary and his wife now live in Austin.


Gloria Moore


My name is Gloria Moore and I will be teaching students with auditory impairments in grades K-2. I have 25+ years of teaching experience primarily in the area of Early Childhood Special Education. This will be my third year as an A.I. teacher.

I earned my master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education from UT-Austin, my bachelor’s degree in Special Education from Syracuse University, and completed a graduate level teacher certification program for Deaf/Hard of Hearing from Texas Tech University.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 32nd anniversary and we have two daughters. My hobbies include gardening, dancing and figure skating.
