Mrs. Veronica Rogers-Horton


Good day. My name is Veronica Horton, and this year will be my seventeenth year in education. It is an honor as this is my fifth year as principal at Monteagle Elementary. As we move forward in a world that is becoming increasingly innovative, I strive to ensure an education that encompasses academics, social and emotional well-being while also ensuring our campus safety. This includes character development, career guidance, and extracurricular and fine art learning experiences. 

I am originally a native of Alabama and moved to the beautiful state of Tennessee in 2018. My husband, Dan, and I have a large family of six adult children that we are very proud of. We are also blessed with two beautiful granddaughters and a parson terrier named Ruby.

I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 2006 at Athen's University, a master's degree in Elementary Education in 2009, and an Education Specialist degree in Instructional Leadership in 2017 from Lincoln Memorial University. With my family's support, I obtained my lifelong goal of a Doctorate degree in 2022 from Lincoln Memorial University in Instructional Leadership.

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 to Tennessee's whole child approach to the Monteagle Elementary community through my role as a leader in Marion County.
