Mr. Rob Moore, a familiar face in the community, embarks on a new journey as he joins the history department in a full-time capacity.
Mr. Moore holds both a B.A. and M.A. in History from Loyola University and Villanova University, respectively. In his role, he will teach both Ancient World History and Modern World History.
“I’m excited,” Mr. Moore said. “After spending a full year substituting in all three divisions, it’s really exciting to come back and work in the upper school full time, having my own class and guys, and continuing to work with the crew guys.”
Mr. Moore’s connection with students is deeply rooted for someone who has only worked at Haverford for a few years. Mr. Moore serves as an assistant coach for the crew team, a position that he has filled for two years. He has also subbed in classes across the divisions, allowing him gain a lot of experience working with all ages of students and become a familiar face in the upper school to many students.
This year, as he takes on the mantle of a history teacher, he eagerly looks forward to guiding these same students in a different academic pursuit.
“I worked a lot with the now rising Fourth Form guys in my long-term sub role in the beginning of last year, so I had a lot of the guys in English in my sections this year for history,” Mr. Moore stated. “It will be interesting to see the guys in a different subject.”
Mr. Moore has also worked with the rising Third Form class.
“I saw them [in middle school], so seeing them mature and take that next step will be great,” Mr. Moore stated. “I am looking forward to building off of what we started last year.”Mr. Robert Moore

With his time subbing, Mr. Moore was able to gain a unique view of the school, as opposed to one division.
“As a sub, I got to see what a Haverford student was from start to finish,” Mr. Moore stated. “There were days when I started in Pre-K and would end with [Sixth Formers]. I was able to have the unique experience of getting to see how Haverford shaped boys into young men.”
