Tammi Ann Moore

Tammi Ann Moore died Feb. 14. She was 48.

 

Moore grew up in Livermore and attended Livermore High School and then Oregon State.  She worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the IT field for 10 years before leaving the Lab to work at Peoplesoft and Oracle.  After having experienced the Montessori teaching methods while her children attended Valley Montessori School, she decided to get her teaching credential. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Human Development from California State University and an Elementary Montessori Credential from the San Francisco Bay Area Montessori Education Center.  She became a teacher at Valley Montessori in 2009, working in a classroom of first through third graders for nine years. Her students included many children of Lab employees. She had the urge to come back to work at the Lab in the last couple of years and she had been working for the Radioactive Hazardous Waste Management Division. She was an avid runner and ran marathons such as the Hood to Coast Relay (for 17 years in a row) and many other races across two continents.  

She was an incredible teacher and children will carry the lessons that they learned from her throughout their lives, including kindness, gratitude, and humor in addition to traditional classroom subjects.

She is survived by her husband of 26 years, Rich; sons Justin and Mitchell; father Mark; sister Debbi and brother Lukas. There will be a celebration of life at Cornerstone Fellowship, 348 North Canyons Parkway, Livermore, March 16 at 11 a.m.
