Susan Horton - Director
I have always known that I would be working with children one way or another throughout my life. Babysitting and Sunday school teacher in the 1970’s, Pediatric Nurse in Orlando during the early 1980’s, Parenting and Girl Scouts in the 1990’s.
Then in 1995 the Lord brought me to New Covenant as a part-time 2-day a week fill-in teacher. He opened doors that I was not looking for and experiences that ignited a passion for teaching.
At the end of that first half year I was asked to come back and teach full time. I spent 9 years teaching in the three-year-old program before the Lord provided me with another opportunity for growth as the Educational Director. Then in 2006 I took over as Director of the preschool.
The Lord has walked with me each step of my journey here at New Covenant, through patience and strength to overcome difficult situations, wisdom to guide young parents and mentor new teachers, making it a joy to come to work each day.
In 2019 my husband Mike and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary. We have 2 grown children, both graduates of UCF, and one adorable granddaughter. Our son Adam is a Computer Engineer at LMCO, and daughter Christina (married to son-in-law Dusty, another Engineer at LMCO) is no only mother to our granddaughter Celes, but she is the designer and owner of Whimsey Kei hand made jewelery..
I thought I loved my job , however ther lord increased it a thousand fold by having my own granddaughter enroll. Who wouldn't want to come into work everyday to hear, "Grandma Susie!" running down the hall?
