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 2014 my husband Mike and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We have 2 grown children, both graduates of UCF. Our son Adam is a Computer Engineer at LMCO, and daughter Christina (married to son-in-law Dusty) is in banking.
Both Mike and I cannot wait for the next opportunity that the Lord may bring into our lives, “Grandchildren.”
