About Ms. Harmon
Hi, my name is Ms. Harmon. I am from a small town in Minnesota, where my husband and I grew up. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in 2012 with a bachelors in Education and a minor in math. I knew right away that I wanted to teach secondary, because obviously the best kids are middle schoolers! After university, my husband Alex and I got married and then quickly moved to Torreon, Mexico to teach at Colegio Americano de Torreon, an international school where I also taught middle school math. We have taught there for four years. We loved our school in Mexico, but had an itch for a new adventure, which is what led us to ISS.
This will be my second year teaching at ISS. I teach 6th grade math, 7th grade Pre-Algebra, 8th grade Algebra and 9th grade Geometry. It is easy to say now that I call the ISS my home and community. Even though I am not new to most of my students, each year is a fresh start and I believe that we will learn and grow in math together this year!
When I am not teaching math, I love to run, travel, and spend time with my husband and our two small dogs. We are expecting to add a new little Hurricane to arrive in November and we are so excited to see what that will bring! You will quickly find out that I am excited about life! I try to keep things as positive as possible and 98% of my day I have a big smile on my face. I have been told my happiness is contagious! I can't wait to have another awesome year at ISS and prove that math class can be so much fun!!
