Welcome to my page. My name is Kevin Harding but most people on campus call me Mr. H. I'm thrilled to say I teach Auto/Diesel at Amphi High. My main focus in the classroom is to provide as much hands-on experience as possible for each student and to prepare them for a career in automotive/diesel if that is their goal.
I attended the following schools in Casa Grande:
Casa Grande Jr. High School
Casa Grande Union High School
I am a 23 year retired veteran of the United States Air Force where I worked as a heavy aircraft mechanic. The attention to detail and critical thinking I learned during my service days continues to serve me well. I've always had a passion for cars and grew up in my dad's garage and a cousin's body shop. I really tested and honed my automotive skills while serving and had a handful of project cars, a motorcycle, and Jeep.
Defining Moment in Education
While serving, I amassed 7,000 classroom hours teaching new troops how to work on heavy aircraft. Years later, I still receive messages from former students telling me what an impact I had on their career.
Core Educational Belief
To be the best teacher I can be, I must be as moldable as the students. Everyone learns differently. It's my job to recognize and apply a different teaching style based on each student's needs.
