Welcome to my Classroom
North Buncombe Elementary
Hi! I am Mary Ellen Horne and I teach Resource with grades K-2. I have been teaching since 1984. I graduated from Keuka College in the Finger Lakes of NY with a BS in Elementary and Special Education. I have an MS in Elementary Education with a reading emphasis from Cortland University. I have been teaching in a variety of special education classrooms in Western NC since 1996.
I grew up in the mountains of Northwestern PA, which is very similar to Western NC, so I feel right at home. I enjoy working part-time at the Biltmore Estate Winery as a Grape Stomp facilitator. I enjoy traveling, reading and taking day trips to nearby attractions. I also enjoy playing handbells and the piano.
I look forward to an exciting year!
