Dr. Maria Moran

Hello Business students! 

My name is Dr. Maria Moran and I will be your Principles of Business instructor.  I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am a 1990 graduate of WHHS. I am the daughter of a retired US Army Veteran. I have traveled and lived in Europe with my family. Although I enjoyed my time traveling to different countries, it was always exciting to come back home to the U.S. 

Some of the countries I have lived in or visited include: Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Austria, The United Kingdom and Spain. I have also lived in South Korea. I visit Puerto Rico to see my extended family whenever I can. Stateside, I've visited Los Angeles, New York, Louisiana (NOLA), SC, Georgia, Florida and Pennsylvania. My dream trip is to visit Norway, Sweden and Finland.  I like to study the educational structures of other countries.  

I'm a proud Career Technical Education instructor. I was a CTE- Business instructor for Brunswick County Schools. I have extensive experience teaching secondary and university level courses online and in the classroom. Here are a few of the courses I've taught:  Principles of Business, Business Management, Computer Science Principles, Project Management, Business Law, Personal Finance (Honors) and Career Management (Honors). I've developed and taught work-shops for Brunswick County Schools and New Hanover Regional Medical Center. 

I've advised the following Career Technical Student Organizations: DECA, SkillsUSA and I was the advisor for the National Technical Honor Society. 

I have two adult sons.  My oldest graduated from NC State with his Masters in counseling and currently works in Carrboro. My youngest will finish his Doctorate in biochemistry this year at Wake Forest University. I'm so proud of my guys!

When I am not writing short stories, I spend my time visiting Southport/Oak Island beaches and playing with my beagle, Dexter aka Mr. Stinkles.
