Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Paula Hornaday

     My name is Mrs. Paula Hornaday. I was born and raised in Alamance County. I graduated from Southern Alamance High School in 2002, earned my teaching degree at NC A&T SU (Aggie Pride!) in 2009, my master’s degree at Elon University in 2012, and my National Board’s Certification in 2014. This is my 11th year teaching at Hillcrest.

           I have been married for 15 years and have 3 sons.  Jake is 7, Caleb is 3, and Wesley is 1 month old! I love to sing, play soccer, compete in mud run obstacle courses, and direct the choir at my church. My favorite drink is coffee and my favorite color is purple.

           I like to make learning fun by writing songs about math, creating projects for science, and acting out stories in reading and social studies. We have a lot to learn this year but it’s going to be awesome and I can’t wait to get started.

           I am out on maternity leave with my new baby, but I will see you in October!
