Passcode: 609 091 4042


My name is Kawna Harder.  I have been a Special Education Teacher for over fourteen years.  I started my career in Special Education as a para-educator in a very small town in Eastern Washington.  I loved being a para-educator, but decided I wanted a more flexible career in education. I went back to college and received my B.A. in the field of Interdisciplinary Studies Liberal Arts.  I then went through the Alternative Route to Special Education Program conducted by four of the main universities in Washington State. In 2006,  I received my Special Education Teaching Certificate and received my first job opportunity as a Special Education Teacher in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.  I lived there for seven years and then Cottonwood, Arizona for 4 years. Since 2018, we have lived in Tucson with our two children and many animals.  I have been a Developmental School Teacher, K-3 grade resource teacher, and a Cross Cat Middle School Teacher.  I am currently a 4/5 resource teacher.  


My family and I love to be outside exploring.  We love traveling around the state and visiting popular attractions.  We travel to Washington almost every year to visit family.  We get the opportunity to see many different landscapes and interesting places along the way.  We also get to stay in a cooler climate for a while during the summer.
