About the Teacher

My name is Caroline Horton, and I received my degree in Elementary Education from Mississippi State University in 2012. I live in Hernando with my husband, Jonathan and my baby girl, Mary Love! This will be my ninth year teaching second grade, and I am very excited to spend my sixth year at Hernando Hills! I am passionate about children and consider it my joy and responsibility to help them achieve success in the classroom. I believe that every child has the ability to learn, and it is my goal to teach to their individual needs. Not to mention, have a lot of fun while we're at it! I am excited about the opportunity to teach your precious child!
