About the Principal

This is my 10th year in education and my 4th year as the principal at Hardin-Central Elementary. Over the past several years, the elementary staff has strove to make positive changes to our students' educational lives. Some of the updates we've made are: short-throw projectors in every room, document cameras, updated math and reading programs that align to Missouri Learning Standards, Chromebook purchases for student use (we currently have almost 60 Chromebooks for students to use and look forward to going 1 to 1 in the near future). One of my favorite quotes is by Elisabeth Rohm and says "You never stop learning if you have a teacher who never stops being a student." Here at Hardin-Central we'll continue to look for ways to improve our teaching skill so we can, in turn, better teach your children.
