Staff Profile: LaMonte Horston

Vicky Tsur

LaMonte Horston is a busy guy here at Hausner! We spoke to him during lunch this week and learned about the incredible way that he spends his free time. You won’t want to miss this!

1. How long have you lived in the Bay Area, where did you come from and what brought you here?

I've lived in the Bay Area for 31 years. I was born and raised in Oakland and moved to Fremont last March. 

2. What is your role at Hausner and how long have you been here? 

I have worked for Hausner for one and a half years as an assistant teacher and substitute teacher. I spend a lot of my day in PE classes and doing recess and lunch duty. I also direct the Hausner aftercare program so I’m quite busy!

3. What was the highlight of your working week?

My favorite part of any week is watching students show positive attitudes in PE. I love seeing the students helping each other, being good sports and lending a helping hand. It’s very important to me to foster these positive behaviors in the students.

4. What do you do when you're not at work?

I have 2.5 acres of land in Southern California and I spend any time I can there on my land. I am in the process of trying to put a livable structure on the land so that I can start to live and work there. My ultimate goal is to build a farm on the land. I want to raise livestock and grow crops, starting with corn. I also play Adult League basketball. 

5. What do you think you would do if you weren't a teacher?

If I wasn't a teacher I would be a cartoonist or a video game tester. Or a farmer, of course!

6. Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I make my own cartoons and anime. I make up my own characters with voiceovers and everything. 

7. What is your favorite Hebrew word?

Boker Tov! What better way to start the day and connect with the students in the morning.
