  • Shandyn Benson Welcome!  I started teaching at Harding High School in 2009 but I have been teaching in St. Paul since 2000.  Harding is an authorized IB MYP School (International Baccaleureate Middle Years Program) and I am the MYP Coordinator.  In addition to being the MYP Coordinator, I also teach MYP Year 4 World History.  I am committed to being a life long learner.  Since earning my BA from the University of Minnesota, Duluth in secondary social studies education, I have earned a certificate in technology from UMD, an urban education certificate from Hamline University, and a Master's in Educational Administration, Principal Licensure and an Education Specialist degree in Administration from Saint Mary's University, Twin Cities.  Please contact me if you have any questions about the MYP at Harding.
