Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Tabitha Hardy

     I am very excited to be back for another year of teaching art at Canyon Springs. I graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson with a BFA in art education and am happy to be able to work with this fabulous team. I grew up in an Air Force family and have lived in Florida, Iceland, Canada, Virginia, and Texas before coming to Arizona. Throughout my nomadic military existence, my love of art has been a constant and I am eager to continue sharing that passion with my students. My teaching experience began as a teenager when I volunteered as an assistant to my own private art teacher after moving to Arizona. Throughout the rest of high school and college, I have taught art to elders, intellectually and developmentally disabled adults, children with special needs, and in the classroom of Rincon Vista Middle School as a student teacher. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, theater productions (Got Shakespeare?), reading, west coast swing dancing, and of course creating art.
