Mrs. Teresa Hartner
My name is Mrs. Teresa Hartner. This is my 16th year teaching here at Fort Dix. I am delighted to be part of such a positive and caring school. It is both an honor and privilege to work with our military families.
I hold a BA in Elementary Education, a P-3 Certification, and a Master’s Degree in both Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I attended Rowan University (formerly called Glassboro State) for my BA degree and later went back to earn my Master’s Degrees. Over the years I have taught a variety of grades from preschool to third grade.
I have lived my whole life in New Jersey. My husband and I have raised three beautiful children including my daughter Dawn who lives at home with us and is a nurse, my younger son Rob who is a DC police officer, and my oldest son Stephen who is a graphic designer in New York City. My boys are both married and we are currently very excited to anounce that we are awaiting our first grandchild (June 2017!).
I love teaching the youngest children here at Fort Dix. I especially enjoy all the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have in preschool but more than anything, it is the success of every child I have had the privilege to teach that makes my job such a rewarding one.
I look forward to many more years of teaching the students of Fort Dix Elementary School.
