Mr. John Moore
Hello all, my name is Mr. John Moore and I am the In-School Suspension Instructor at Hamilton Elementary. Raised in the St. Louis, East St. Louis area, my parents instilled in me discipline and leadership values. While growing up, My goal was to make it to the NBA. As I've gotten older I've realized that was just a dream, and that my calling to developing youth was reality. For the past 9 years youth development is were I've enjoyed spending my energy. My mission in this position at Hamilton Elementary is to help students understand their behaviors, the benefits and consequences of their actions and how to express healthy and positive behaviors. In school suspension is more or less action taken to give the student time out from class for their inappropriate behaviors. My goal is not to punish, but to assist the student in processing through difficult situations, positively. Incorporating one on one interventions, peer to peer mediation, incentives, staff to student interventions, behavioral plan modifications, reinforcement of school policies and parent engagement, I believe collectively we will give the student every opportunity to succeed.
