Ms. Retter

Hello! My name is Michele Retter and I am an Intensive Reading teacher here at Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks.  Currently I teach 6th, 7th and 8th grades.  Both of my children attended Horizon Academy and were very happy here.


I recently graduated from Capella University with a Masters of Science in Education with a specialization in Reading and Literacy. In 2011, I graduated from the Univeristy of Central Florida with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies concentrating on education, sociology and criminology.  I am currently working on pursuing a Doctorate Degree in Educational Technology and Instructional Leadership.


I started working at Horizon Acadmey in 2014 as a paraprofessional in the Reading Department.  I love all my students and enjoy working with each and every one of them.  I invite you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns either via email or this webpage.



Please browse through my webpage for information on your child's class.  Syllabi as well as expectations for each class will be posted along with daily assignments and activities.
