Principal

Welcome to Mrs. Tyla Moody!

Prior to joining the Sand Hill-Venable community, Mrs. Tyla Moody had served the students and families of Buncombe County as an assistant principal and as an educator of exceptional children for a total of 21 years. She grew up in a family of educators, and has pursued multiple master’s degrees, embodying her desire for students to be lifelong learners.


“The overall success or failure of society depends on how much importance that society places on education,” she said. “It can be pivotal for children as they become young adults, and my goal is to support them as they grow and learn. I am looking forward to meeting the children and supporting them and their families through this very strange and unusual school year. We’re making sure to keep everyone as safe as possible. I look forward to meeting the staff and families, working with them to move forward as a whole community.”
