Eli Moore feels a deep calling to connect with young people in order to help equip them for the vital tasks of thinking clearly and living well. As a student, he traveled extensively in many countries, including China, Japan, India and Egypt. He studied the principles of Buddhism in Tibet, Hatha yoga in Nepal, the Performing Arts at the University of London, and Philosophy and Education at Columbia University. Upon graduating with an Ed.M. from Teachers College, Eli entered the field of education in earnest. He’s designed educational spaces and developed specialized curricula for charter schools; taught classes for sixth graders and seminars for college students; assisted the renovation of an independent school in Jamaica, and guided a group of elementary students on a voyage through the Marshall Islands. Currently, he’s the Director of Extended Day Programming and a Teaching Specialist at the Barrie School in Silver Spring, Maryland, where he engages with teachers and students of all ages in innovative activities and creative projects that extend beyond the classrooms.
