Hello! My name is Sonya Prater. I am so happy to be a teacher here at Horizon Elementary School! Each school year is unique and I am so excited to begin the upcoming year.  I grew up watching my mother teach and that started the "fire" within me. I loved watching and learning from her.  Helping children learn and grow is my passion.

I am married to my wonderful husband Jermaine. I have two sons Lloyd and JaBrayden. They keep me very busy and we have a lot of fun together. I enjoy going to the gym and working out in my spare time and reading a good book.

My goal, as a teacher, is to help your child reach the next level in his or her learning. Third grade is a big year and we are going to reach some new and amazing heights. We will get to these levels together as a team who works as a community of learners.
