Mr. Hardy

Welcome to 8th Grade!


Greetings! I am pleased to introduce myself as the illustrious 8th grade social studies teacher for the 2018-2019 school year! It has been an amazing ride working with the talented staff and students of Normal Park Museum Magnet, and I'm ready to jump into our new academic year. I'm all about building strong relationships and I look forward to getting to know you all. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions as we move forward together!


About Me:


I graduated from the University of Tennessee (go Vols) in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in History and a Master’s degree in Education. Though I have been in the classroom full time since 2011, this will be my third year serving as part of the Normal Park faculty. Outside of the classroom, you’ll certainly find me enjoying the outdoor perks that Chattanooga life has to offer. I often bike along the river, hike Signal Mountain, or hang out with a book in my hammock in the park. Generally, my good dog boy, Murphy, is along for the ride. Be sure to say hello! In addition, I love to talk about podcasts, board games, food, and travel. This year, I am gearing up for an exciting summer trip to Japan, but I will take any and all recommendations. Cheers to the good times this school year!
