Mr. Garrett Horton

Hello! My name is Garrett Horton and this my 7th year of teaching (1st yr in Waynesville). I'll be teaching 8th Grade American History.

I obtained my Associates of Arts from Ozark Technical Community College in 2013 and graduated with a dual bachleors of Science in Elementary Education (1st-6th) and Middle School Social Science (5th-9th) in 2017.  I also graduated from Williams Woods in 2019 with a Masters in Education in Teaching and Technology.

I'm from Richland, MO, but I was a military child growing up living in 3 military installations till my family came back to Missouri in 2000 and lived here since. I was born in Ft. Leonard Wood and went to the Waynesville School from 2nd-8th grade till I moved to Richland.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, family, play video games, read, and watch sports.

I believe that students have a voice when it comes to their education by showing their creativity. I believe that students have potential to succeed in the classroom. My goal in my classroom is to create an environment where students can succeed and gain confidence in their ability to learn.

Looking forward to having your child in my classroom this school year.
