My name is Jen Van Horn and I love teaching first grade.  I am so excited and welcome your child to first grade! I am blessed to have your child in my class. I look forward to an exciting year filled with many exciting activities that will contribute to the social, emotional, and educational growth of your child. First grade is a year of significant growth and I believe that by all of us working together, we can make this a very successful year . And don't forget your child is "BE" - "you' -tiful to me ! 

I have been a Carver Eagle for over 20 years. I graduated from East Carolina University, magna cum laude and have a minor in Psychology. I received my National Board Certification in 2007. I am a proud mom of two grown children, Megan and B.J. I also have fur children: Bella, G.T. and Shelby. When I am not teaching ,I enjoy collecting peacocks, art, movies, reading,  and spending time with my wonderful husband , Richard.
