West Haralson: Teacher of the Year Lance Hardin: West Haralson Elementary Teacher of the Year
I am honored to receive such a prestigious award from my peers and dedicate this award to my family, my students and their parents (past and present), and to the WHES family. I thank you all!
I have lived in Haralson County my whole life. I am a 1998 graduate of Haralson County High School… GO REBELS! After completing high school, I went on a two year missionary trip for my church. Upon the completion of that I jumped into education as a parapro and worked in various positions throughout the primary and elementary schools in the county.
In 2007, I graduated from the University of West Georgia in Elementary Education and was hired by the school system in the summer of 2008. I am in my 6th year at West Haralson and teach Social Studies and Science. I love the subjects that I teach and love to make learning fun and innovative for my classes!
My wife, Tiffany, and I have three beautiful children: Ella (5), Eliza (3), and Hyrum (1). Ella is in her first year of school at Buchanan Primary, and loves it! Eliza enjoys helping her mommy around the house and having home-school until she can attend Pre-K. Hyrum enjoys following Eliza on her many adventures and is becoming a great climber like his sisters. We are active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and currently reside in Buchanan.
Outside of school, I teach an early morning religion class to high school students at 5:50 am.
