My name is Veronica Rogers-Horton. I am a native of Alabama and moved to the beautiful state of Tennessee in 2018. My husband, Dan, and I have a large family of five adult children and two boys that are in high school. We also are blessed with two beautiful granddaughters.
After graduating from Valley Head High School, I worked as a substitute teacher where I found my passion for public education. I decided to enroll at Athens State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I taught for three years at Fyffe High School before pursuing a Masters in Elementary Education at the University of West Alabama. I continued to work as an teacher at Fyffe High School before earning an Educational Specialist Degree in Instructional Leadership and also Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University. Overall, I have 16 years of experience in education but strive to be a lifelong learner.
I am committed to the students, parents, teachers, and communities in Marion County. I desire to improve the quality of education for all students while serving as an advocate for students and teachers. I look forward to contributing Tennessee’s whole child approach to the Monteagle Elementary community through my role as a leader in Marion County.
