About Mrs. Mary Horn...
Position: Media Specialist
Welcome to Haley Elementary Library ... Where we LOVE to READ!
My Education and Professional Background
I am an ASU graduate and I hold my Masters Degree in Education/Curriculum and Instruction at NAU. I also have a Reading, Early Childhood, Media Specialist and a SEI endorsement. I have taught since 2004. My joy is spending time with my family and grandbabies! My husband and I have five grown children that have all graduated from Chandler Schools. I love to garden (flowers mainly), read, sing real loud (although I'm not good at it), and play the banjo.
My Educational Philosophy
As an educator, I love to provide children with challenging learning opportunities each day. I'm excited to work together with our Haley families to provide opportunities for children to grow socially and academically to enrich their lives.
The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Haley Elementary?
What’s great about Haley Elementary—the energy, the focus, the dedication, and the general enthusiasm for learning! It isn’t because the test scores are stellar and the student-teacher ratio is awesome. To me, the clearest reason why Haley is incredible is that so many of the parents are involved. Parents—both those who have jobs outside of the home and those who don’t—are seriously all over our school. There are weekly activities led by parents, and they volunteer in the elementary classrooms and help with Art Masterpiece, APEX, Running Club and much more. Parents get to know the teachers their kids will have years down the road, and as a result, a bond is forged from the very early years. Teachers know the parents, parents know the teachers, and a community that has the kids at the forefront is formed. It’s incredible.
