Who Am I?

Mrs. Horgan

Science Department Chair

Earth, Living Systems & Science 6 Teacher

What Do I Love About Teaching?

Each new school year, I get to teach new sets of students with varying characters, experiences, and ideas. As their teacher, I learn from each of my students.  They make me laugh, think, and reflect on my personal teaching style.  Watching the lightbulb get bright when new ideas are shared, leading the way toward change, growth, and new mindsets.
