Enjoy your summer break! See you in August 2022!
Welcome Back to School
I hope you have all had a restful summer vacation! I hope you are all healthy and found things to do during the quarantine.
We will have some fun learning about each other and refining some of your reading and writing skills.
By the end of 8th grade you will be more independent and sophisticated learners!
I am ready to get back into the swing of things and I hope you are too!
Degrees and Certifications:
Master of Arts in Elementary Education Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning with Technology Bachelor of Science in Business Administration AIG Certified
My name is Mrs. Trisha Horta, and I am your child's 8th grade Language Arts teacher. This year is my sixth year teaching at Archer Lodge Middle. Prior to coming to Archer Lodge Middle I worked at West Clayton Elementary as a 4th grade Language Arts teacher. Before that, I worked at Cooper Elementary as a 5th grade Language Arts teacher. I began my career in education about 16 years ago at Cooper as a Teacher Assistant. I have a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from NC State University, a Master in Teaching and Learning with Technology from Ashford University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
My husband and I along with my 2 children moved to Clayton 16 years ago from New Jersey. I absolutely love it here in North Carolina! I do miss my very large extended family, the boardwalks of NJ, bagels, and pizza, but happily call Clayton my home.
My children are 18 and 16. Justin, 18, is a football player at Wingate University. Julianna, 16, is a junior at CHHS and plays volleyball. We keep busy attending lots of sporting events. I love animals and have 2 dogs (a Boxer and an American Bulldog) and 1 rabbit! The mountains is my happy place, although I can also appreciate a little sand between my toes!
I look forward to getting to know all of you and seeing you around town!
