Hi, my name is Karli Neilson and I have been teaching at Harding since 2014! I received both my bachelor's (Global Studies/German) and master's (English as a Second Language) degrees from Hamline University. I have co-taught 11th and 12th grade English Language Arts classes at Harding, as well as a variety of Language Academy classes for students who are learning English.
When I am not at Harding, I enjoy playing the piano, going on walks, listening to audio books, baking desserts, learning new languages, and watching reality TV. I also enjoy traveling whenever possible. I live in Saint Paul with my husband, daughter, two dogs and a cat.
I think school should be fun and that learning can create many opportunities. A quote that is meaningful to me is: "Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions." -The Dalai Lama
