Welcome to First Grade!

Mrs. Harvell and Mrs. Keaton's Class

Meet Mrs. Harvell

I'm Mrs. Harvell. This is my 4th year teaching and my 6th year with Harnett County Schools. I worked 2 years as a teacher assistant while I finished my last 2 years of college. I graduated from the University of Phoenix in May 2012. I'm married and I have 3 girls. I love animals. My family and I live on a small hobby farm where we have chickens, horses, rabbits, cats and dogs. I enjoy doing crafts and making things. I'm looking forward to working with all my first graders this school year. We will have a great year!
