Humble. Hard-working. Selfless. These are three words that help describe Rock Academy’s new member of the teaching staff. His name is Mr. Horn. He teaches conceptual physics, AP World History, public speaking, and middle and high school PE.
He was born in Canada and moved to Fresno California. He finished his medicine degree at San Diego State, and he plans to continue his education until he no longer can. By chance, he became a substitute teacher and fell in love with it. He loves spreading knowledge and being able to pass on information to other people. His teaching philosophy is “stay ready, then never have to get ready,” and a lyric from a rapper Earl Stevens, “a dream without a plan is just a hallucination.” He firmly believes that whatever you’re doing in life, whatever goal you have set, if you don’t have a plan to get that then you might as well see things that require steps to take to get where you want to be.
When asked why he decided to become a teacher at the Rock Academy he answered with, “when I was just being interviewed to work at the Rock the feeling that I got was as if I was coming to work with my family…I felt like it was just a family environment.”
The Rock Academy has had very good teachers in the past, we welcome him to our small faith community and anticipate what he can do with our existing programs.
