Faculty

About Our Faculty

The Harmony Hills Academy teaching body is rich in experience and abilities.  Our teachers realize the true importance and far-reaching possibilities of their profession.  They are fun, energetic, enthusiastic, productive, self-motivated, self disciplined individuals who wake up each day driven to be the best and to support their colleagues in the same endeavor.  They are committed to creating and managing programs both inside and outside of the class that provide our students with the incredible opportunity to thrive in our program.

The Faculty of Harmony Hills Academy serves the school in many ways and is dedicated to bringing the children a living experience of education. The faculty meets every Monday after school for common study, broadening their understanding of current educational challenges and practices, and for developing a greater perception of children and their needs.

Our faculty members are also active in the administrative and committee life of the school. Faculty members meet to discuss updates and needed items for the school, as well as looking for ways to fund new projects at school and in the community.
