Gasca’s Got Spirit

(Monday, December 14, 2020) -- In a year that’s turned the world upside down, Christiopher Gasca, a second-grade teacher at M.H. Moore Elementary, is looking to offer a sense of normalcy for his students.

His efforts recently caught the attention of NBC 5 DFW (KXAS-TV) and were featured in the station’s “Something Good” segment. This school year he’s continued the tradition of spirit theme weeks for in-person and virtual students dressing in a wide array of colorful outfits.

“I go on dressing in holiday gear, joking with the kids, trying to make lessons fun because my students should not suffer,” Mr. Gasca recently told a colleague.
