Nancy M. Moga
Callaghan Elementary School
Covington, Virginia

I am so proud to be a principal! I love what I do and the many complex daily challenges. It would be a privilege to serve all principals and school leaders as Zone 3 Director. If elected, my goals would include growing Association membership, communicating with stakeholders, and elevating each school to be the pride of the community! Several generations ago, each school was the pride of the community. There are many success stories to be told, and we need to elevate the accomplishments of schools and principals to higher levels. The public needs to trust our community schools and know that all schools are getting better each day. As Zone 3 Director, I will assist principals in using the resources of NAESP to promote the outstanding service provided to their community and students.
