About Mrs. Hardison

My husband, Barry, and I are proud to call Pickens County our home. Our daughter, Hannah, and our son, Reagan, are "big kids" now, but both were former Hill City Hawks and graduated from Pickens High School. As a family, we are active in our church, enjoy running, and like to visit the beach as often as possible. Of course, my favorite pastime is reading a good book!

Being a part of the inaugural teaching staff at Hill City Elementary has been my honor. I have taught grades first through fourth and in 2005 was selected as Hill City's Teacher of the Year. In 2015, I became the Media Specialist and  I am THRILLED to serve in that position again this school year.
