This week we want to spotlight our 4th-grade teacher, Mrs. Harshbarger! This excellent teacher has taught kids of all ages for a long time and has been a proud Eagle for five years! She says she loves working with 4th graders here at McKenzie because she loves their "sense of humor and enthusiasm for learning new things!" When asked what her favorite memory McKenzie is, she had a tough time choosing! She said, "I enjoyed watching Mr. Meister, and Mr. Barrett eats crickets. I have also enjoyed the field trips that fourth graders have been able to go on." What is YOUR favorite Mrs. Harshbarger memory? Please help us thank this excellent teacher in the comments below.
