Mrs. Julie Hardin
Welcome to first grade! My name is Mrs. Hardin. I am very excited for this year! I have been teaching about 28 years in either first or second grade. I live in Middleton, a 25 minute drive west of Meridian. My family and I enjoy the great outdoors; camping, riding ATVs, boating, hiking and fishing, and of course sitting around the fire telling stories.I also grow a garden each year and have a cat named Pepper and a black lab named Yeti.
I love teaching young children! It is so fun to hear their stories and watch them "get it" when learning something new. It is so inspiring and fullfilling to see the immense growth your first graders make over the year. First grade energy helps keep me young and eager to do fun activities. I look forward to a great year of learning and fun academic activities.
I'll apologize now for the MANY "ums" throughout this video. I'm pretty sure I do not use the "um" much while teaching, but sitting and looking at oneself creating a video of so many thoughts I want to share with you brought out the "stumbly, bumbly Mrs. Hardin". Many apologies as you watch.
