Mrs. Christie Hardi

I’m Mrs. Hardi and I've been teaching 5th grade at Blake Manor Elementary since 2014.  

I’m originally from Queens and Long Island, New York.  I moved to Texas in 2010 to pursue becoming a teacher and I’m so glad that I made the move!

When I’m not at school, I spend time with my family.  I love finding fun things to do with my husband, 3 kids, and 3 dogs. I also love going to Starbucks, Target and shopping on


I have a Bachelors degree in Human Relations from St. Joseph’s College and a Masters degree in Childhood Education from Long Island University. I have been working with students in grades 2-5 since 2007 in a variety of roles.
