Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Horton

I had a full career as a Systems Analyst before I began teaching Computer Science at PESH. This allows me to bring real world information into my classroom. 

I currently teach AP CS(Computer Science) A, IB DP CS SL, IB DP CS HL, Honors CS III. I also host the computer science club as well as a committee of the club known as "Girls Who Code".  The club is open to any student interested in investigating computer science topics.  It is student led.  Thru the club, students can investigate areas of interest with others interested in the same topic or compete.  We go to about a dozen contests each year as well as hosting our own contest and hosting a booth at Paloween.  Colleges love to see competitions on your application resume.  Students who practice problem solving for competitions also tend to score higher on the AP CS A exam. 

I have two daughters, a stepson and several grandkids. When I'm not teaching or grading papers, I enjoy training and competing with my dogs in sports such as agility, dock diving, obedience, rally, scent work, tracking and hunting. My social time is normally spent with family or out with my "doggy friends."
