My name is Kimberly Hardwick and I am excited to be teaching at the school that helped me raise and educate my own children. I am originally from Oklahoma where I was raised on a small farm and enjoyed taking care of animals, riding motorcycles, and playing sports. My family was transferred to Colorado my senior year of high school and I have found it to be home. Prior to teaching I worked as a School Age Director while pursuing my degree in teaching. I received my Bachelor Degree from Metropolitan State College of Denver where I majored in psychology and minored in education. I then went on to pursue my Masters at the University of Colorado with a focus in Literacy. This is my thirteenth year as an educator in the Adams 12 community and I'm very excited to be teaching at Stellar.
I am a mother of four children, whom I love dearly. Kailey (18), Courtney (17), Gavin (16), and Josiah (5) keep me very busy outside of work traveling with sports and theater. My husband, Brian, and I love being outdoors and spend our free time hiking, gardening, and enjoying the great wonders of Colorado.
