  • Hello! 

    I am pleased to be starting my third

    year at Harding as a Special Educator.Elaine Harries

    I have previously taught in both the Northfield and Lakeville school districts. I have over 20 years of experience in the field of education. I live on the east side of St Paul in an artist loft with my husband Vaughan (who is an amazing photographer), our chiweenie (chihuaua/dachshund) Izzy, and our hedgehog Scrumpy. (Yes I did say hedgehog!) We have successfully raised three children (Rhys 26, Ali 25, Kerry 23) to adulthood and now enjoy our time traveling and exploring our Lowertown neighborhood.

    As a Special Education teacher, I have a wide knowledge of content and look forward to adapting it to meet my students needs. I am a techie wannabe who has always loved school and hopes to instill that love in her students.

    My quoteable quote is: "Every day is a good day when you learn something new"- E.Harries

    I look forward to working with you and your student, please contact me via phone or email anytime.   GO KNIGHTS!
