Mrs. Kristen Hobbs Horton

I grew up here in Effingham County and have always wanted to be a teacher. I am honored to be teaching in the same school district that I grew up in! I started teaching at Sand Hill Elementary in 2009 and have taught pre-k, kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade and this is my first year in 4th grade. I have also coached softball (6 years) and basketball (2 years) at South Effingham Middle School. 

I am married to Wesley Horton and we have 3 children: Karlee (12th grade at SEHS), Tanner (6th grade at SEMS), and Easton (4th grade). I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my kids play sports, going to the beach, reading, and crafting.
