Angela has been teaching in elementary education for over twenty years. About 5 years ago, she asked God to show her how to combine her love for children and teaching with her love for horses. That journey took her to Prescott College in Arizona, where she earned her MA in Education with an emphasis in Equine Assisted Learning. Along the way, she became certified in teaching with the Horse Powered Curriculum, designed by Dr. Michele Pickel from Concordia University, St. Paul, MN. Her goal is bring horses and students together to create a fun and engaging educational experience.
