|About Mr. Harding
Dear Parents and Students,
I graduated from San Francisco State University 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. Before teaching, I worked 10 years in Sales/Marketing in the Hospitality Industry, working for Westin, Sheraton, and Hyatt Hotels. I received my Post-Baccalaureate in Secondary Education from Ottawa University in 1995. I began Teaching in the Kyrene School District at Kyrene Aprende Middle School August 1995 teaching Math, Social Studies, and Industrial Technology.
In 2000, I co-founded an at-risk summer program for the Kyrene School District called STAR. In 2001, I was the co-founder and facilitator of a pilot program called the ACE club, an in school prevention program.
I received my Masters of Education in Counseling/Human Relations from Northern Arizona University in 2003. In 2004, I was the first hire for the Kyrene Alternative to Suspension Program teaching Character Education and Positive Behaviors. In 2020 I began teaching 7th grade Social Studies/World History. Overall, I have been continuously teaching within the Kyrene School District since 1995.
I am married and have two sons. I love spending time with my family, and I enjoy the outdoors. In June of 2018, I became a published author. My book shares my experiences and knowledge working in KASP. I also love the work I do and it shows in my classroom and around our school district. I look forward to meeting you and working with you.
