Welcoming our new teachers....Emmy

Emmy Kurtz

Born and raised in Boulder, Emmy is a true Colorado girl. She obtained a BA in sociology and music and a MA in elementary education, both from the University of Denver. She is also endorsed in early childhood education. She taught at Isabella Bird Community School for 2 years in ECE and 1st grade and also has experience as an Expeditionary Learning teacher. As a graduate of Horizons K-8, Emmy is fortunate to work side-by-side with her

mentors and childhood teachers. Horizons provides the foundation and support for Emmy to work with children in flourishing as creative problem solvers, inquiring explorers, eager leaders in service, rich knowledge holders, and connected global citizens – both in the classroom and beyond. In her free time, Emmy can be found singing, traveling, cooking, hiking with her family’s Golden Retriever, practicing her Spanish, appreciating music, and IMG_0624finding shapes in the clouds while relaxing in a hammock.

MENTORS WANTED

How would you like to mentor an “new-to Horizons” family?

This is such an important role.  Meeting with a new family and discussing the calendar, the daily schedule, class photos, vision screening, and all the particulars that come up in the course of a year will help them to instantly feel apart of our community.  Mentors do not discuss curriculum or philosophy but are priceless in helping newbies know the ins and outs of navigating a year at Horizons.   There are committees to join, Council to attend and many volunteer opportunities.  All mentors are given a script of what to discuss per calendar month. It’s easy, it does not take much time and it is important.

Please let Hope know if you are willing to be a mentor.
