Teacher Assistant

      Hi, my name is Jennifer Hardin.  I am from Richlands, NC where I have lived most of my life.  I went to Richlands Elementary, Trexler Middle and Richlands High where I graduated in 1999.  I am married to Alan Hardin and have three wonderful children Chandler, Hannah and my newest edition Ally.  I love going shopping and going to the beach, but most of all I love spending time with my family.

      Following the birth of my son in 2001 I got a job at Miss M's Tot University where I worked for five years.  I worked with infants on up to preschool in my career at Miss M's.  This is when I decided that I wanted to further my education.  I received an Associate in Early Childhood Education from Coastal Carolina Community College and became a lead teacher at Miss M's. In 2007 I applied for a teacher assistant position with Onslow County Schools.  I worked for Northwoods Elementary from 2007-2008 and Richlands Primary from 2008-2009. 

      I was given the opportunity to become a part of Stateside Elementary in 2009 as a kindergarten TA.  I taught the computer lab for two years.   I am currently back in Kindergarten as a TA.  I enjoy being able to teach children new things and watch them grow as students.  There is nothing more special than to watch a child's eyes light up when they figure something out or learn something new. I am currently working on obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. 

      Being a "Teacher Assistant" is more than just being an assistant.  Teachers and assistants work hand and hand with student's everyday as a team to inspire children to learn.  From my career at Miss M's to my few years of being a teacher assistant I have taken and learned from each opportunity.  Being a "Teacher Assistant" has been and will continue to be a wonderful learning experience for me as a prospective educator!
