Ms. Horton

Hi everyone :) 
My name is Keara Horton and I'm the Science and Social Studies teacher for 4/5. This is my 7th year teaching and I'm very much looking forward to another year here at Clyde Erwin. I'm a Florida native and taught there for 5 years prior to relocating to North Carolina. I graduated from Florida State in 2014 with a Bachelor's Degree in Family & Child Sciences and Psychology. I then earned my teaching certificate in Elementary Education and went on to teach Science (as a special) for pre-k through 5th grade, 5th grade, as well as 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'm looking forward to this year, being your child's teacher, and all the fun times to come!
