Hello and welcome to my web page!  I am so happy you have decided to stop by!  My name is Jennifer Hardy and I am the GATE Facilitator at Indian Hill, Gomez-Heritage, and Sherman Elementary. 

This is my 18th year of teaching with the Omaha Public Schools.  I have taught Kindergarten – 3rd grade, been an Instructional Facilitator, and a Technology Teacher for the district.  I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and have earned an endorsement in ESL and Masters in Elementary Education, Curriculum & Instruction, and Administration.

I have lived in Omaha for the last 25 years, but I married a man from a small town in Central Nebraska.  We have been married for 15 years and with my marriage came a bunch of cows.  I always like to amaze my students when I tell them I have about 100 head of cattle.  My husband also teaches for OPS.  We have two children, Lauryn who is in the 7th grade and Andrew who is in 4th grade.  We love spending time together reading, watching movies, or traveling.  We have a new puppy, named Izzy, who keeps us all on our toes!
