Director of Instructional Services
Hello, I’m Rita M. Moravek, Director of Instructional Services for Alliance Public Schools.
I am a fifth generation native to the panhandle of Nebraska being born and raised on the ranch my family still owns and operates west of Marsland. I attended a one room country school for most of my elementary education and I graduated from Crawford High School in 1972. Twenty years later I graduated from Chadron State College. Everyone in my family loves to tell the story of how it took me 20 years to get through college!
I have four daughters: Shasta lives in Chadron and teaches at Gordon-Rushville and has started a new alternative Middle School for that system. April lives in Chadron and works for Chadron State College's financial aide department. Ginger (Pete) lives in Gering where she is a manager of a C Store. Angel lives in San Diego where she just finished her Master’s Degree in business/accounting.
I live with my husband, Bob, and our kitten, Merlyn. We enjoy home improvement, gardening and I especially enjoy working with flowers. I like all flowers but especially enjoy my growing rose bed.
I love my job. I am fortunate to work with the best staff in the world but the best part of my job is the students. I get to visit all of the buildings and spend time with the students. We have so many students that do such an awesome job every day. I love watching sports that the students are involved with also enjoy following their progress in our curriculum. These kids are really smart! They are full of life, energy and spit and vinegar and that’s just the way I like them.

MS degree from CSC in Administration (K-12 Principal) - 1995
