Mrs. Horak

Let me share a little bit about myself.  I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland.  I attended Duke University and got my undergraduate degree in Political Science, because I wanted to change the world. I worked for several years for The Nature Conservancy, a non-profit conservation organization, that protects lands and waters that rare species need to survive.  I met my husband when living in the Washington, DC area. I decided to be a stay-at-home mom when my two daughters, Molly and Isabel, were young.  We moved to Asheville in 2002 because we wanted to live someplace beautiful and with a slower pace of life.  When my younger daughter Isabel started kindergarten at Glen Arden, I decided to go to UNC Asheville to get my teaching license, because I was still determined to change the world--one child at a time.  I have been teaching at Glen Arden since 2008. 


I love to spend time with my family, including our dog Blitzen. In my free time I  like to hike, doodle, listen to music, watch Duke basketball, and read!  You will also see that I am a huge fan of Snoopy and the Peanuts gang!
