About Mrs. Hornbacker


Hi! I'm Stacy Hornbacker and am currently a first grade teacher at Oakland Elementary School. This is my 16th year teaching! I grew up in Peoria, Illinois and came to Bloomington to attend Illinois State University for Early Childhood Education.  I was fortunate enough to be placed at Oakland for my full year student teaching and have never left!  Over the last 15 years, I have taught Kindergarten and First Grade.  Shortly after starting my teacher career, I returned to ISU for a Master's Degree in Reading.  I have also taken graduate work in Special Education and Technology.  I am also a wife and mom to four amazing kids!  My stepdaughter Haylee is 16, Chloe is 10, Emily is 8, and Chad is 5!  They keep my very busy in my "free" time.  We also have a golden retriever named Coda.
