Late Taina Mooser and Mrs.Stein

Taina Mooser was a very highly esteemed individual. She accomplished much in her life from many years of teaching and experience. Mrs. Mooser was an English Language Development Specialist at Rosemont Middle School for almost twenty years. Current RMS ELA teacher Janet Welsh remembers the early years when Mooser first arrived after working at Toll Middle School. “ We had a large influx of Korean and Spanish-speaking students. Mrs. Mooser was in charge of our second language program…we had to make our own lessons and materials, and try our best to teach this beautiful group of students English.”
Mooser came to Rosemont in the early 2000s and she retired in 2019. At Rosemont, Mooser worked with both seventh and eighth-grade students as an ELD specialist. One of Mooser’s many strengths was the ability to be able to see each student as an individual, each at their own English level, not just the class as a whole. Mooser is remembered by her colleagues as a very humble and patient person. She took her time to make sure that each student grew academically at their own pace.
Mooser touched the lives of many people in our community. One of her dearest friends, Rosemont ELD specialist and English teacher Stephanie Stein, looked up to Mooser as a mentor not only in her teaching and academic life but also in her personal life. Mrs. Mooser was very welcoming of Mrs. Stein and the two teachers worked together every day and did presentations together. One of Mrs. Stein’s fondest memories with Mooser was when after she retired they would hang out after school and get lunch together. According to Mrs. Stein, “My favorite memory is going to visit her after she retired. We hadn’t seen each other for probably six months and we were just really excited to reunite and I would go visit her at her house and we would go to lunch and hang out.” Taina was a very wise individual. She would provide great advice to her family and coworkers. Three words often used to describe Mooser are inspiring, knowledgeable, and fun. Taina had many hobbies, a few of them being rowing, cycling, and painting. She loved to row and she was in a rowing club and later in a cycling club. She loved her daughter Zoe so much.
Unfortunately, Mooser passed away in a tragic cycling accident on Friday, October 27 in Santa Monica, California. As an avid cyclist, she passed doing something she loved.
