What Staff Says about Horatio


Curtis Black

The 2024-2025 school year will begin my 27th year in education with 24 of these years teaching in Horatio School District. During my time at Horatio, I have coached, taught Spanish I and Spanish II, served as the English as a Second Language Coordinator, Assistant Principal at the elementary, Elementary Principal, and now I am the High School Principal. In each of these roles, I have been blessed to work with some amazing educators. Horatio School District truly has a family atmosphere that supports both students and staff. As a district, we are dedicated to providing students with the resources, knowledge, and experiences to be successful after graduation. The memories I have made throughout the years here at Horatio are priceless.

The 2022-2023 school year marks my 31st year in the Horatio School District. I have taught every grade level except for 11th and 12th and on every campus at some point during those years.  Both of my sons are graduates of the Horatio School District and have benefited from the well-rounded education they received. After teaching language arts for many years, I am now the K-6 physical education teacher which has become my dream job.  The camaraderie among the faculty and staff at the elementary is outstanding which in turn creates a positive learning environment for our students. I’am so grateful to be a part of our work family here at HES! #GoLions

I was a student at Horatio Schools beginning first grade in September 1964 and graduated May 1976. I was called and offered a job at Horatio Schools in August 1981 and remain employed with the district. My three children attended and graduated from Horatio Schools. They received the instruction from teachers needed to continue their education and obtain degrees. I have been involved in several volunteer jobs in the district from running concession stands, keeping scorebooks, Parent/Teacher organization, beauty pageants, homecoming, etc. The Horatio community has pride in the school and has always helped when needed.  The district is so grateful to have this kind of community support. I have enjoyed working with the administration, faculty, and staff for 40+ years. I have seen a lot of changes but wouldn’t want to do it anywhere else. I encourage you to give Horatio School District the opportunity to educate your child(ren) and be involved in their school education and activities.

The 2022-23 is my first year to teach in the Horatio School District. I have 36 years experience teaching Math and Coaching at various schools in Arkansas and Texas. So I have a lot of experience to qualify this statement; it is my opinion that the Horatio School District is a great place to work. I will admit to being a little biased. I am a 1981 graduate of Horatio High School, so it is fair to say I am enjoying being ‘Home’. The staff and students here create a  great place to work. As a team, we need to work to together to raise the standards and expectations of our students, both academically and athletically. This should be expected everywhere, but when you are home, it is more important.
