Erik Brandt

  • Erik Brandt photo Welcome!  I am a National Board Certified Teacher and I have been teaching English at Harding since 1995. I additionally served as Harding's IB Diploma Program Coordinator from 2008 - 2021. I am currently Harding's advisor for the Future Educators of America Club. I also offer concurrent enrollment credits through St. Paul College and Harding's IB DP Literature HL class.

    I grew up in Wisconsin, Australia and Scotland and came to Minnesota to attend Macalester College.  I later earned my Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies from Hamline University.  In 2007-2008, I was a Fulbright Exchange Teacher to Budapest, Hungary.  

    Feel free to contact me if you have questions about English at Harding!
