Bachelor of Science in Family & Child Sciences and Psychology Elementary Education K-6
Hi everyone :)
My name is Keara Horton and this year I am teaching 4th and 5th grade Science and Social Studies. I just moved to NC from South Florida and I am so excited to be an Eagle! I graduated from Florida State in 2014 with a Bachelor's Degree in Family & Child Sciences and Psychology. I then attained my teaching certificate in Elementary Education in Florida and taught for 5 years. My experience includes Science (as a special) for pre-k through 5th grade, 5th grade, and most recently 4th grade. Growing up and then teaching in South Florida granted me endless diverse experiences and opportunities for growth and learning that I believe will benefit your child this school year. Teaching is my passion and there is nothing like being in a classroom watching the engagement and learning of a child!
When I am not at school I have two German Shepherds, Brock and Sally, who occupy as much of my time as I'll allow them to :) I enjoy weight lifting, reading, trips to the beach, and crafting. I am loving the NC weather which, believe it or not, is cooler than South Florida. I'm looking forward to this year, being your child's teacher, and all the fun times to come!
