About The Instructor

Sara Hardin

Working with special needs students became a passion for Sara Hardin in seventh grade, when she volunteered at a summer camp for physically disabled children. Their willingness to keep trying new things despite serious obstacles impressed her and inspired her to become a special educator. She has taught special education for nine years, mostly at the elementary level. She completed her master’s degree in special education in 2000. 

Review

As a certified teacher who has been out of the classroom for many years and is now back in the field, it was just what I needed for considering a certification in special education. Thank you so much.
