Ms. Anne Hardinger

I am a native of eastern North Carolina. When I am not at school I enjoy gardening, reading, crafts and outdoor activities like camping and spending time at the park, or in the garden.  I love to spend time exploring and figuring out how things work.  I have two grown children, four wonderful grandchildren, and two pups, and a cat that make sure I stay busy.

I am a National Board Certified teacher and a member of NCAE. I believe that an excellent education is one of the most important things we can give to our children, our communities, and our nation.
