• ¿Quién soy yo?

    Me llamo Sra. Horton. This is my 24th year in the district (23rd year teaching) and 13th year here at NCHS.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Spanish education from Illinois State University in 1998 and earned my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction (Education) at ISU in 2010.  I have had the opportunity to travel to Spain and study in many areas of Mexico as well as visit Costa Rica.  I also enjoy Spanish-speaking areas in the United States. I love teaching Spanish and enjoy exposing students to cultures different from their own. Personally, I have traveled to Africa numerous times and enjoy learning Swahili and collaborating with the school teachers over there. 


    My goal is to help students reach their full potential within my classroom as well as teach them valuable life skills along the way.  I want to bring out the best in each student as a learner and as an individual.
