About Mrs. Hardison
My husband, Barry, and I are proud to call Pickens County our home. Our daughter, Hannah, is a sophomore at Georgia Southern University and our son, Reagan, is in 11th grade at 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.
