I love working at Horizon Academy because we have a quiet, positive, safe environment where students can succeed at their own pace. The atmosphere of collaboration is felt throughout the program. Our teachers never give up on students and always make a unique connection with each one, so that they are able to open up and learn. Watching students blossom into confident and competent learners is what drives me to do better at my job everyday!
