Meet Mrs. Horne

         Hello! My name is Kate Horne. I have been teaching at Gilford Elementary School since the fall of 2013. That year, I taught fourth grade and I have been teaching third grade in the years since. I graduated from UNH with my Bachelor's in Psychology and my Master's in Elementary Education. 

         Teaching is a passion of mine that began to grow when I worked at a child care center as a teenager. I consider myself a lifelong learner and I hope that each one of the children in my class comes to love learning too. I believe that by teaching children how to think critically, they are better able to learn and bring deeper meaning to what they already know. I recognize that all children are unique in who they are and how they learn. I aim to support and encourage every child so that they see themselves as valuable members of the classroom community who are learning and growing.
