Welcome parents, students and family members to the 2019-2020 school year! I have waited all summer just to meet each and every one of you. This year is very exciting for the Hornsby 4-8 Family. We have many new staff members as well as some redesigned placements of classrooms. Not only that, I am teaching a new subject!!! I have enjoyed my time as a Social Studies teacher, however, I have been given several new and wonderful opportunities. This year I will be the 6th Grade ELA Facilitator. Facilitator? Yes! This brings me to the NEXT wonderful opportunity. This year, Hornsby will be stepping into the 21st Century by piloting a "Flipped" learning in one, if not all of the 6th grade ELA courses. Not only does this mean less traditional homework, but it also means less PAPERWORK. Take a look at the media presentation on flipped learning when you have a chance.
