After joining the Gifford Youth Achievement Center (GYAC) in 2016, Mrs. Horskin continues to be inspired by the organization. What was once curiosity has transformed into a deep appreciation and love for GYAC.

Learn more about Mrs. Horskin by reading the brief Q&A below:


Q: When did you start working at GYAC?

A: “I started working at GYAC in September of 2016.” Mrs. Horskin discovered GYAC after hearing about “all of the awesome things” that the organization does while working as a substitute teacher at Dodgertown Elementary School. After learning more about GYAC, she was inspired to apply for a teaching position.


Q: What grade level do you teach and why?

A: “I teach third grade.” Mrs. Horskin had several long-term, substitute teaching positions for third grade prior to accepting one with GYAC. She feels comfortable with teaching this age group. “I know a lot of the material.”


Q: What’s one thing you want people to know about you?

A: “If I don’t know the answer to the question, I will find it. No matter what it takes. I am very determined.”


Q: What are you most proud of?

A: “Being able to get a job” at GYAC. Her children will be attending GYAC soon, so she is proud to be a part of an organization that offers various opportunities, such as learning how to swim, reading assistance, and help with homework. She “can’t wait” for them to join.


Q: What advice would you give your younger self?

A: “Enjoy every moment of being in school because it goes by so fast.”
