Meet the Principal

Welcome to Horizon Elementary School! I am excited to be joining the amazing Horizon staff and eager to work and build strong partnerships with the families and students of our school. Learning should be fun and engaging. It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors – teacher, students, and parents – are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges and curriculum goals in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. 

I have been a member of the Jerome Community and worked for Jerome School District for 22 years. While in Jerome, I have had the opportunity to be a technology teacher and guidance counselor at Jerome Middle School and a guidance counselor, IOT teacher, and Work-Based Learning Coordinator at Jerome High School. My passion is children and watching them develop their individual skills while bringing out their inner genius. I have 4 children ranging in ages from 7-18 and being a parent is the most rewarding challenge ever. 

I believe every student is entitled to an equal and individualized education. Building relationships and providing structure are essential to meet this goal. In addition to a focus on student achievement and positive relationships, it is particularly important to me to make sure you and your child feel safe at school. If you ever have a concern or question about a specific situation or procedure, please do not hesitate to stop in, call, or email me to discuss any concerns or ideas. 

We look forward to building a partnership with the Horizon families this year. 

Wendy Ohlensehlen, Ed. S.
Principal, Horizon Elementary School
