Hi! My name is Kristin Hardaway, and I am the Life Skills Teacher at La Vega Elementary. I have been teaching for the last 18 years. This is my second year as a La Vega Pirate, and last year was a bit crazy, but we made it! I am a Texas A&M graduate for both my undergrad and my masters degree, which is in Education Psychology for Low Incidence Disabilities. I have worked within Houston ISD and the Special School District in St. Louis both as a teacher in self-contained settings and also an Effective Practice Specialist for students with autism. I am so very excited to be here with you all in La Vega where students come first. It is going to be a great year!
