My name is Deanna Baxter and I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade science at Horizon this year! I will also be teaching a few life app sections of robotics. That being said, I will be assisting the coaches of the MHIS competitive team and will sponsor the robotics club (non competative).
My husband and I have four daughters (and one grandgirl) who have kept me busy and involved in education for the past 22 years as a volunteer, sub, coach, and troop leader. Once they were all in school, I was able to finish my education. I graduated from UCO in 2011 and began my career as a 5th grade science teacher for six years before moving to 6th grade science.
While 2020 has been a challenge so far, I am looking forward to what the year has in store for us. It is my hope that your students finish this year with a love for learning and the confidence that they can do what they set their mind to.
