Moorman new early childhood professor

Felice Moorman is a new addition to MCCC’s faculty, teaching Early Childhood Development.

Moorman said she’s looking forward to working with students in the program.

“I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with future early childhood educators, helping to facilitate their development as future teachers,” Moorman said.

The Early Childhood Development position at MCCC is a perfect next step for her, Moorman said.

It will blend her love of children with her love for working with future teachers.

This semester, she is teaching ECDV-105, ECDV-106, ECDV-107, ECDV-210, and ECDV-218 courses.

Moorman’s career began as a third grade teacher in a public school district in Southeast Michigan.

After the birth of her children, Moorman took a leave of absence to stay home.

It was during that time that she decided to complete the coursework for a graduate degree.

After finishing her Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education at Eastern Michigan University, Moorman was asked to join MCCC’s Early Childhood Education faculty as part-time instructor.

“During this teaching experience, I realized that while I will always love working with young children, I really enjoyed working with adult future teachers as well,” she said.

Moorman, her husband, children, and a 1-year-old Goldendoodle, Fuzzy, reside just outside of Ann Arbor.

She and her husband enjoy running, an activity that began this past fall. Both of them participated in several 5K races.

She said she always loved sports and physical activity, but running is now her favorite pastime.

“I can run whenever it fits into my schedule  and it helps me let go of any stress from the day,” Moorman said.
