Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I am very excited to work with you and your children this year at Horizon Elementary School.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I began my teaching career in Wendell 18 years ago. At Wendell Elementary, I taught second and third grades, and also ESL for a total of 11 years. In 2008, I moved to Horizon Elementary in Jerome and taught third grade for two years and reading intervention for two years. In 2012, I went to Gooding to begin my journey into administration. I was principal at Gooding Elementary for two years before returning to Jerome this year. I am so very pleased to be back in Jerome and at Horizon Elementary!
As you all know, a strong connection between school and home is one of the best ways to ensure a quality education. The Horizon Elementary Staff and I believe communication between home and school is of utmost importance. It is our goal to create a partnership between each home and school, which assures every student’s learning will be optimal and every family will be involved in the educational process.
Please visit our website at http://www.jeromeschools.org, read our newsletters, and attend school functions such as parent/teacher conferences throughout the school year to be an active participant in your child’s education.
I look forward to seeing you at Horizon Elementary! It’s going to be a fantastic year!
