Mr. Horkey 6th Grade ELA

My name is Tyler Horkey and I am the 6th grade English Language Arts teacher at H-M-S Middle School. My main teaching focus is reading and language as a whole, mainly concentrating on the writing aspect and the use of English language in writing.

This is my second year teaching at the middle school and I am also the head football coach for the HMS Hawks. I earned my B.A. in Exercise Science from Buena Vista University in 2007 and then in 2011 completed my B.A. in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Masters in Education with an administration focus. I taught in Spencer, IA for 3 years in the 2nd grade team before coming to HMS.

I am married to my wife Melissa and we have three sons, Breckin (6) and Brooks (2) and Brantley (6mo). We also have an enormous golden retriever, Lexi. In my free time I like to spend time with family, watch football, play with my kids and ice fishing is one of my favorite hobbies.
