Sekwana Horge was born and raised in Washington, D.C. She graduated from Howard University with a B.S. in Mathematics and then earned her Master’s degree (M.A.T.) in Elementary Education from American University. Sekwana has over 15 years of teaching experience in DC Public Schools. She has taught PreK3 through 6th grade. She also serves as an adjunct professor in the math department at the University of the District of Columbia’s Community College. As a result, Sekwana is able to masterfully differentiate her instruction and work with her students with knowledge of where they have come from and what they are expected to be able to do in college. She uses this knowledge to ensure that all of her students can set appropriate academic goals and meet their goals with success. Sekwana has worked with students with learning disabilities, emotional disorders, intellectual disabilities, autism and other health impairments through the inclusion model that has been implemented in her school.
As a classroom teacher and private tutor, Sekwana works closely with parents to ensure that students can be supported in all aspects of their lives. After all, parents are the experts on their children. Sekwana uses multiple modalities to teach and tutor students and often taps into the interest of the students to teach the required standards in English/ Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.
Beyond her elementary classroom, Sekwana also teaches ballet, jazz and tap dance at My Turning Pointe School of Dance. In her spare times, she loves to travel and spend time with her family.
