Meet Mrs. Tate
Hello Everyone! The 2018 - 2019 school year will be my tenth year teaching at Horizon Elementary. I was a third grade teacher here for six years, and now I'm excited to begin my fourth year teaching 5th grade. We have a lot of fun learning math, science, social sciences, reading, and writing that will help you be ready for middle school.
I've been a member of the Horizon community since 1999. As a parent of a third grader, I was an active member of the PTA and started the after school program.
My education background includes a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Kinesiological Sciences from the University of Maryland. After graduation, I spent time volunteering in the community, helping in the classroom, and starting a family. When we moved to Virginia, I returned to school to earn my Masters in Elementary Education from Old Dominion University. I was able to work with all the grade levels in elementary school as a long-term substitute, and in 2009 I started teaching full time at Horizon Elementary.
