I hope you all have an incredible summer!  I can't wait to see you back next year!  



Hi!  My name is Mary Horne.  This will be my seventh year teaching and my third at Riverwood Elementary.  I am so excited to be joining the 2nd grade team this year!  I graduated from UNC-Wilmington in 2003 with a BA in Elementary Education.  My husband and I are so blessed to have 4 beautiful girls.  We have Mallory in 6th, Madison in 5th, Morgan in 3rd, and Molly Mac in 2nd!  I'm looking forward to an awesome year together!
