    Valerie Harp Valerie Harp
    Second Grade

    "Teachers who stop learning have students who stop learning." I truly believe this statement and that is why I currently have a masterís degree plus 15 additional graduate hours. I am a National Board Certified Teacher, a Mentor to both Novice Teachers and those seeking National Board Certification, and a Praxis III Assessor. Being a consultant for Everyday Math allows me to train teachers in other states. I have taught second grade for sixteen years, and one year I taught a second/third split. Teaching is extremely rewarding, and I strive to make learning as much FUN as I possibly can. Along with teaching, I enjoy reading, shopping for bargains, and spending time with my three daughters and two grandchildren. I collect souvenir pennies, Aladdin lamps, and sand. My husband and I are Hartford residents. I LOVE the area and appreciate the support of the local community, it residents, and parents.

    Wendy James Wendy James
    Fifth/Six Grades

    My name is Wendy James. I am married to Brandon James of 14 Ĺ years and we have three terrific boys, Tyler (12), Brennan (10), and Jaden (7). In my spare time I enjoy playing with my boys, chasing their sports all over the place, reading (when I can), cooking with my husband and mowing the lawn.
    I graduated college with my Bachelorís in Early Childhood Education from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville in May, 2003. In August 2007, I moved my career to Hartford Public Schools, where I teach 5th grade Math, Science, and Social Studies. I absolutely love Hartford. We are so fortunate to have a district that allows teachers to teach. We learn through hands on activities, teacher instruction and guided practice, and independent investigations. Within the 5th grade, Mrs. Hawkins and I work together to ensure that all the standards are covered and that the children have fun learning it. We often times combine classes to allow for the students to work whole group through science labs, poetry reads, group presentations and also individual project presentations. We have fun learning; exactly the way learning is meant to be.
