Ms. Hartnett - Room 23

Welcome to Room 23!  Third grade is such a wonderful year, full of field trips, learning and fun.  As an educator I am passionate about sharing my love of learning with children.  My goal is to encourage children to discover their own unique gifts.  I am fascinated by the latest brain research and often infuse my lessons with brain breaks, movement and growth mindset shifts.  I strive to provide a nurturing, creative, rigorous, inviting classroom environment that encourages every student to feel safe and take risks.   I live in Carmel with my husband, Greg, our three children, Abby & Lily (Juniors at CHS) and Quinn (a Freshman at CHS), our dog, Gatsby, cat, Pumpkin and our parakeets, Star and Sky. I love the ocean, animals, hiking, yoga, traveling, and teaching!   During my free time I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, knitting, walking on the beach, and relaxing with family and friends. I graduated from University of California, San Diego, UCSD's Revelle College, and the University of Barcelona, and received my teaching credentials from Chapman College and the USC Rossier School of Education.  My 23 years as a teacher have been some of the most meaningful of my life.  Knowing that I have made a positive impact on a child's life is the best reward I could hope for.  I am honored to be teaching 3rd Grade at our wonderful school in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  Please stop by to say hello!
