    All About Mrs. Rider

         Hi! In case you didn't know, I teach 5th grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies. This is my 2nd year at Horizon as a 5th Grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies teacher. I'm no stranger to Horizon however as previous to becoming a teacher here at Horizon, I student taught here, volunteered here and was even the PTO President for a couple years. I LOVE being a Horizon Panther!

         In my personal life, I'm married and have a son at Apollo High School. We moved here to Arizona a few years ago from South Carolina. We are happy to be here and enjoy the weather much better here than back east, yes even despite the HOT summers, though we are beginning to miss the rain and greenery everywhere. When I am not teaching I like to read, play video games, listen to music (any kind) and spend time with my family. I LOVE butterflies and the color green. 

         I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in Kindergarten so I'm pretty lucky to be doing what I love. I graduated from Grand Canyon University about 3 years ago (GO LOPES!). I had the AMAZING opportunity to student teach with Mrs. Guiliani who I credit for helping me become the teacher I am.  I'm thankful for the opportunity to work with our future generations. I love to have fun with my students, I call it SERIOUS fun, and it makes working everyday a BLAST!! We sing, we dance, we laugh and most importantly we LEARN! Feel free to come by and visit and join in on the fun!
