Hi!  My name is Christina Harder and I am looking forward to teaching and loving on your children this year.  This is my second year at ELC and my first year to be on the Pre-K team.  I am excited about seeing your children grow and learn and make new friends this year.  A little bit about myself, I have been married to my husband Chris for ten years.  We have three children (Melanie-8, Rachel-5, Benjamin-4).  Before I had children I taught at Southwest Christian School for seven years.  I taught P.E. and Health and coached the Varsity soccer team.  After kids, I was able to stay at home until last year when I started teaching here at ELC.

Fun facts:

-I love sports (watching and playing).

-My husband is a civil engineer.

-I have two sisters and one brother.  One of my sisters shares my birthday, April 3, but we are 3 years apart and not twins.

-I played soccer and softball in college in California.

-My family loves to go backpacking and fishing in the summer as well as the beach!
