M. Ed. Educational Administration Concordia University
Tenacious. Wholehearted. Eager. These three words most accurately describe Ms. Horne and her vision of realizing equity and social justice for students in all educational environments.
For most of Ms. Horne's fourteen year career in education, she has worked with students in Title I schools, where she has been able to inspire students to achieve their highest potential in spite of what they previously thought was possible. Her "never give up" attitude helped to prepare all of her students for their post-secondary plans.
Her nine years in the classroom as a secondary educator allowed her the ability to teach in a variety of settings ranging from Inclusion to Advanced Placement courses. Ms. Horne has also worked as an English Language Arts Instructional Coach for four years. In that position, she was an integral part of a dynamic turnaround team that in two years helped bring a middle school from an unacceptable rating to achieving all seven distinctions awarded by TEA.
Ms. Horne's goal is to lead an inclusive educational community that values the contributions of each member. She desires to help students and educators realize their academic and personal potential by building a collaborative and forward-thinking team.
