Hi! I'm Mrs. Harder. I have been teaching for 6 years, all of it in 7th Grade. Guess I just like 7th grade that much! I believe that reading and writing are essential to a successful life no matter what you are interested in or decide to do. I love to read (obviously), Sci-fi and fantasy, and movies. I have a "horse dog", as my daughter calls our Great Dane, and a 6-year-old Pit-bull. Some of my favorite things are: cheese, purple, the number is 13, giraffes. Ask me about giraffes. Please. Ask me about giraffes.
