With a passion for art, Ms. Hornick naturally felt a calling to pursue teaching. As an artist, she is expressive, unusually creative, and driven, which are all qualities that compliment a career in education quite nicely. She pursued an education at Queens College, where she earned a Bachelor of Art in fine arts in 1969. She remained at the school for the next four years, earning a master’s in art education. Later in life, she acquired a post-doctoral advanced certificate in educational supervision and administration from Hunter College.
A certified permanent New York State art teacher, Ms. Hornick has brought her services to plenty of academic institutions in the area. Earlier in her career, she worked as a fine arts teacher at Hillcrest High School, Eastern District High School, and Tottenville High School, all located in the surrounding boroughs of Manhattan. In 1976, she was hired at Grover Cleveland High School, where she remained until she retired in 2003. During her time there, she worked with her students and peers in many different roles, including conceptual art teacher, yearbook advisor, art department coordinator, and ecological awareness teacher.
In 2017, Ms. Hornick became a recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, which is the latest addition to her collection of accolades. Some other notable awards she has received include the International Educator of the Year Award from the International Biographical Center, a Certificate of Recognition for Accomplishments as an Outstanding Teacher from the National Teachers Hall of Fame, and the Medal for Superior Performance from the New York City Transit Authority.
