Ms. Hardie


My name is Gloria Hardie, and I am a special education teacher at Dutch Fork Elementary. I have degrees in special education K-12, early childhood, and elementary education from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania.

Throughout my career, I have taught in various settings ranging from high school to preschool.  Outside the traditional classroom, I have been a Therapeutic Support Staff (Behaviorist), counselor, recreational leader, camp craft director, youth leader, and respite care provider for children and adults of multiple ability levels. These experiences have given me the tools and training to help the children have fun learning while addressing their individual needs.  As an educator, I aim to give children the tools they need to create their best future.
