My name is Kate Hardy and I would like to say how excited I am to be a part of the Northside team. I graduated from the University of Alabama with Bachelor of Science in Education with a focus on Elementary Education, Special Education, and Early Childhood Education and a Masters of Guidance and Counseling. I have ten years of work experience with the Tuscaloosa City Schools system as a math teacher and a guidance counselor. A few of my greatest accomplishments in my professional career include being recognized as Alabama Counseling Association New Counselor of the Year, Carrie Crossley Rogers Outstanding Teacher of the Year, Nicks Kids Outstanding Teacher, and Northside Middle School Teacher of the Year. I am starting my sixteenth year of teaching this year and love every minute of it! In addition, I am married and have three boys children.
