TEACHER OF THE WEEK--Ronni Hardin Third Grade Teacher
Hi! My name is Ms. Hardin and I teach 3rd grade! This year is my 12th year teaching. It is my second year at Chavez Elementary and I'm proud to be a Chavista! I have worked in Little Elm for 10 years and love being a Lobo.
I have a Master's Degree in Education from Texas Tech University. I am a proud Alumni and love to watch Red Raider Football in the fall. I also make a few trips a year to Lubbock to visit my best friend and catch a football game.
I was born in Indiana and lived there for 7 years. When I was in first grade my family moved to Pennsylvania for my dad's work. 5 years later we moved to Cedar Hill, Texas. I'm so glad our family ended up in Texas and I'm very proud to call Texas home! I graduated high school from Cedar Hill in 1998. In high school I played soccer and ran cross country. I still enjoy both sports. I play co-ed soccer with friends and run the occasional fun run with friends. I also like to spend my free time camping and kayaking.
I am a mom to 8 year old twins; a boy named Brayden and a girl named Riley. They will be in Kindergarten at Chavez next year.
