Amy Caster and the newly married Corey Reschke join us to talk about Fourth Grade at Horizon Prep. Corey got married over the summer, so there's no more Miss Davidson. Mrs. Reschke runs Fourth Grade now.

For Corey education was just a side job until she felt God calling her to work with families and children through teaching to help them become better versions of themselves.
