Hello! My name is Mrs. Harkness, and I am so excited to be teaching 7th grade English this fall. Of course, as an English teacher, I enjoy reading and writing. I find it difficult to choose a favorite book, but I've enjoyed a wide range of texts from Pride and Prejudice to Stargirl to The Hunger Games. As far as movies, I love pretty much all things Disney. I also love to eat sweet treats, especially ice cream and sour candies like Sour Patch Watermelons.
In my free time, I like to hang out with my husband and our families. My family got a laser tag set this last Christmas, and that has been a lot of fun. I also like hiking or playing board games/card games. Something interesting about me is that I can't whistle, but I really love singing. The Beatles have a lot of great songs that I love. I also enjoy BYU Vocal Point's music.
I am looking forward to meeting you all during this upcoming school year!
