Randi Moody received the Jenny E. Nunn Outstanding Curriculum and Instruction Student Award for 2015. Faculty in the program characterize Randi as “a dynamic dynamo who is the penultimate multitasker.”  

Randi’s participation in Hood activities has consistently gone well beyond her coursework. she also served as the Graduate Assistant for Hood’s Education Department. Having completed her master’s in Curriculum and Instruction, Randi now plans to acquire new skill sets in new areas. This fall, she will continue her education at Hood in the Reading Specialization program as well as maintain her workship in the Education Department. She will also be a member of the Middle States Committee for the Graduate School, a role in which she hopes to provide input from the graduate student’s viewpoint to enhance the learning experience. “Randi will bring to the table a strong work ethic and thoughtful perspective that will guarantee a productive outcome for the committee,” according to C&I faculty.

Employed by the Maryland State Department of Education as a Quality Assurance Specialist for Maryland EXCELS — the quality rating and improvement system for Early Childhood Education — Randi wants to continue to influence the lives of young children, either directly or indirectly, with MSDE or at the local level.
