Wise beyond her years: 13-year-old speaks of values, education

-A A +A
By The Staff

At just 13-years-old, Katelyn Littleton is focused, confident and kind. She praises her parents and teachers, and talks enthusiastically about her future.

"I'll probably go to one of the more agricultural based colleges in New Mexico or Texas because they usually have really good rodeo programs," said Littleton, who is an avid horse rider. "I would like to be either an equine chiropractor or a middle school math teacher."

Born and raised in Los Alamos, the eighth-grade Los Alamos Middle School student discovered her love of math while attending Barranca Mesa Elementary School. Her favorite subject now, she said, is math and specifically algebra. Science is okay, too, she said.

"I liked most of my teachers at Barranca Mesa but it was Miss Theresa Romero who really got me into math," Littleton said. "Miss Romero was good at teaching all her subjects but math was her specialty."

It is her mom whom she credits with giving her a love of horses. Elaine Littleton rides Amy, a gray Appaloosa, for pleasure now but used to ride frequently in horse shows. She introduced her daughter to the equestrian world.
