Mrs. Christie Horton

Hello! I am Christie Horton, and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. I enjoy getting to know your children and family throughout the year. Here is a little bit of information about my family. I am happily married to Marc Horton, the Head of Schools for Linfield Christian School, and we have been married 23 years! We met in college at Point Loma Nazarene University and now have two beautiful daughters, Carlie (18)and Bailie (15). Carlie is attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo as a second year  for architecture and Bailie is a Sophomore at GOHS. We also have a cute kitty named Archie (3) and another cute kitty named Ralph (3). I started teaching in San Diego in 1997. I taught a K-1 combo, 3rd grade and 4th grade, then I took some time off in 2000 to start our family. I returned to teaching in 2008 at the Special Education Preschool at Jackson Elementary school. I moved to Kindergarten at TLES in 2015 and moved to Vail this year!!  I have loved it very much! Your children will be learning some amazing content this year, and I look forward to partnering with you during this journey! Please feel free to contact me through my school email or my classroom phone. My typical work hours are 7 :15am through 4pm and I check my email first thing in the morning. If it is after 7 and you need to let me know something right away, please call my classroom phone. Thank you!
