Inspired by her late father, Ray Moore Sr, who ran a community nonprofit, she became civically engaged and involved in politics. In 2016, she was the Deputy Regional Field Director in Kent County for the Delaware Democratic Party. She later had an opportunity to become a Legislative Assistant for the House of Representatives for the Delaware State Legislature. She humbly worked and served, one of the longest elected City officials. It was through this experience where she began to find her niche in educational policy.
After researching the data on the State’s suspension/expulsion rates and the school to prison pipeline, Rae had an opportunity to run a statewide campaign focusing on juvenile justice. It was through talking with returning citizens across the state, she realized the powerful impact teachers and community leaders have.
After hearing stories from the working class and those that the system has overlooked, Rae decided to make a shift in careers and became a teacher.

Becoming an educator solidified her passion for advocating for those who feel like they do not have a voice.
