Sandra Horton loves the challenge of learning. She thinks that students need to have experiences that take them beyond
memorization to the application of what they have learned. These activities challenge students to apply what they have learned
in dealing with the complex issues that surround them in today's
world. They are asked to think and to make decisions. To her, learning needs
to be real and authentic, and students need to know that what they learn has meaning and importance in their lives.
Her background includes a Bachelor of Science in Education with endorsements in Early Education NK-4; Elementary Education
4-7; Middle Education 4-8; and Gifted Education.
Her training and experience include gifted education, language arts, literature, creative writing, law-related education,
creative problem-solving, and technology.
