Mrs. Moira Stanton joined Hallahan in December of 2017 as a Spanish teacher and the World Languages Department Chair. Mrs. Stanton graduated from Christendom College in VA with a BA in History and Spanish. In 2004 she began teaching at Hallahan, as a long term substitute Spanish teacher. The following year she went to Quito, Ecuador to volunteer at the Working Boys' Center. She decided to stay in Ecuador, and went on to teach History, English, and Theology at a Catholic bilingual high school, English as a Foreign Language at two other schools, and then Humanities at the American School of Quito. In 2016, she completed her MS in Multidisciplinary Studies focusing on K-12 Education through SUNY Buffalo. That summer, she and her family moved back to the US. Her goal is to help students acquire proficiency in a foreign language and have an appreciation for other cultures.
