Bridging the Gap
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Micah P. Gore and I am currently seeking a seat on the Horry County School Board. I’m a proud parent of two beautiful daughters who currently attend Horry County Schools. I’m pleased to say I also attended Horry County Schools as well. I graduated from North Myrtle Beach High School in 1998. After graduating my passion for education led me to South Carolina State University where I earned a degree in Education in 2002. The next stop on my educational journey led me straight into the classroom where I began my career in education as a classroom teacher. I’ve taught for 14 years and during this time my passion for education led me to earn a master’s degree in Educational Curriculum and Instruction.
Because of my continued passion for education beyond the classroom, in 2016 I began working as an Educational Liaison for ORIGO Education. Through this role my goal is to help states and districts nationally become better equipped to meet best practices in the area of early childhood/elementary mathematics.
As an educator I have frequently heard the ongoing conversation regarding closing the achievement/opportunity gap, being innovative, and improving our country’s educational system. During this conversation it is often stated through press releases, interviews, documentaries, national and local news, etc., that there is a need for improvement in education. It is my goal to be elected as a Horry County School Board member and use this position to advocate for the Horry County community as well as be the bridge between our community and school district. There are many voices to be heard and I want to hear all of them.
Although Horry County Schools is a phenomenal district, there is much work to be done in regards to the continued improvement of our school system as a whole. I look forward to playing an instrumental role in this improvement through my relentless work as a Horry County School Board member.
