Mrs. Hardage has been with us since 2010. She is a graduate of the University of Houston in Elementary Education with specialization in mathematics and is certified in elementary education mathematics. She teaches math for third through eighth grades. Although it has been over 40 years since she began teaching, she is just as excited and just as passionate as if it were the first day.
Mrs. Hardage likens teaching to gardening. Both the teacher and the gardener plant “seeds”. They understand that those seeds may need different care in order to grow and be successful. Their students and flowers may bloom at different times, but with love and patience they all grow. Her teaching philosophy is “bloom where you are planted.” She and her husband of over 40 years have been blessed by three lovely daughters, who are also teachers and three beautiful grandchildren.
