  Mr. MORAN of Virginia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Kate P. 
Moran of Alexandria, Virginia, upon her receiving the Commonwealth's 
Academy Recognition for Educators (CARE) Award,
  The CARE Award honors outstanding educators from across the country 
who are working to enhance the lives of their students. CARE Award 
recipients are recognized for their unrelenting work to enhance the 
lives of the students they serve. Kate Moran, a Special Education 
Coordinator, was honored for her efforts to construct innovative ways 
to train special needs youth in Virginia.
  Raised in Alexandria, Virginia Ms. Moran is a graduate of TC Williams 
High School. She went on to receive her Bachelor's of Arts in Theater 
from Catholic University of America, and received a Master's of 
Teaching in Special Education from University of Virginia. Currently a 
resident of Alexandria, Virginia Ms. Moran has taught in the Virginia 
school system for 6 years.
  As a special education coordinator for TC Williams High School, 
Minnie Howard School, and the Secondary Training and Education Program, 
she has dedicated her career to educating students with learning 
disabilities, mental challenges, and health impairments. In her own 
words, she tries to ``meet the needs of students and families by making 
special education accessible to all types of learners.''
  Ms. Moran's dedication to her special-needs students is 
unprecedented. Over the past 6 years she has made a lasting impression 
on her students giving them the skills and support to lead a fuller, 
more rewarding life.
  I ask my colleagues to join me in applauding Kate Moran and 
congratulating her on this distinguished achievement.
