Staff – Horizons Hampton Roads

Site Directors are certified educators with classroom experience and supervisory/administrative experience who serve as the lead administrator at our sites during the 6-week summer session.

Teachers are degreed/certified, current or recently retired staff members of accredited school systems.  Exceptions are made when those completing their teaching degrees with strong recommendations are invited to lead a classroom, and others with degrees and extensive experience in their field.

Teacher Assistants are college students at least 18 years of age who have expressed an interest or curiosity in education as a field of study. In many cases Horizons graduates come back as teacher assistants and take on a dual role of mentors for younger kids in their communities.
