Mrs. Horrocks

Hello! Welcome to Pioneer Elementary School of the Arts.  My name is Amanda Horrocks and I will be your child’s first grade teacher this school year.  

Here is a little bit of information about me, I am from Boise, Idaho.  I have been married to my husband Ty for two years.   We love to play sports and walk on the green belt.  We have a two year old cat named Penny, who is a huge cuddle buddy.  I absolutely love volleyball, reading, and art.  I am thrilled to be your teacher this school year.  I love teaching first grade.  I strive to create a safe welcoming environemnt to foster creativity and learning. 

We’ll have a special “Meet and Greet” time on August 25 th from 4:30-5:30 p.m. This is when students and their families can come meet me. It’s also the perfect time to drop off school supplies so students don’t have to carry them on the first day of school. If you ever have any questions do not hesitate to email me at
