Mrs. Moynihan is a native Washingtonian who grew up in Spokane. After high school she moved to Bellingham to attend Western Washington University. She graduated from Western in 1974 with a major in chemistry and mathematics minor. Her first job after college was as a lab assistant at Georgia Pacific Company in Bellingham. Her husband’s teaching career took them to Westport, Washington. Mr. and Mrs. Moynihan’s three daughters were born while they lived in Westport, then the family moved to Everett and then Marysville where their two sons were born. Her husband continued to teach in Everett and then Marysville schools. She began working as an educational assistant in Marysville schools and that experience working with teachers encouraged her to go back to school to get a teaching degree. She again chose WWU and completed her elementary education training. After two years as a substitute teacher Mrs. Moynihan came to work at St. Pius X School in the fall of 2007 teaching 2nd grade where she has remained for these past nine years. She really enjoys being able to teach kids about Reconciliation and Eucharist. Her favorite subjects continue to be math and science. On occasion Mrs. Moynihan is able to share her love of music and help the student choir at Mass. Mrs. Moynihan and her husband sing in the choir at Immaculate Conception Church in Everett, their home parish.
