Bachelor of Psychology Master of Education



My name is Michelle Lopez and I currently teach 8th grade English Language Arts and 9th grade English I Honors at Horizon Academy.  I grew up in this community and love to have the opportunity to give back in such a significant way.  Other than teaching, I most enjoy spending time with my family, playing tennis, and leading our church youth group with my husband.  I have been teaching since 2007 after receiving my bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Central Florida and recently graduated with my master's degree of education from Liberty University.  I firmly believe one’s education is a powerful tool and that nobody can take it away from you.  I hope to inspire my students to always give their best and persevere through any obstacle they may face.  It is going to be a great year and I look forward to the quality learning opportunities we will experience together in the classroom.
