Horizon Elementary School
Our Guidance Program 2016-2017
I am blessed to join the Horizon staff this year as the school counselor. This will be my 17th year in education and I look forward to serving our students.
I have lived in the Huntsville/Madison area all of my life and graduated from Bob Jones in 1986. My husband and I have three children, Drew (23), Mary Susan (19) and Ty (6).
In My Spare Time...
My husband and I operate a non-profit organization that serves the Harvest community. We have a food-pantry and typically serve 180-200 families every Saturday.
