Moreno has been the fine arts director for Austin ISD since 2008, a position she will leave Jan. 24, according to a Jan. 21 news release from HCISD.
The new position will return Moreno to where she started her career in 1991, when she was hired as a music teacher for Kyle and Tom Green elementary schools. In the years that followed, Moreno served as a consultant for Round Rock and House ISDs; co-founded the HCISD honor choir; and became the director of the Kodály music certification program at Texas State University, a position she still holds.
Moreno was also appointed to Texas Education Agency’s committee to review and write updated requirements and essential skills for music across the state. She has won multiple awards, including Tom Green Elementary School teacher of the year.
In addition to her bachelor’s degree in music performance and piano pedagogy, Moreno earned a master’s degree in music education. Both degrees are from Texas State.
