My name is Gloria Hardie, and I am a special education teacher at Dutch Fork Elementary. I have degrees in special education, early childhood and elementary education from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. Throughout my career, I have taught in a variety of settings ranging from high school to preschool. Outside of the traditional classroom, I was a Therapeutic Support Staff (Behaviorist), counselor, and respite care provider for children of multiple ability levels. These experiences have given me the perspective to think outside the box to address each child’s individual needs. My goal, as an educator, is to give children the encouragement and tools they need to find their unique voice. With education and the correct amount of support, all children can reach their dreams.
