Spanish - Steven Harvey

Hello My Name Is...

Steve Harvey

¡Hola¡ My name is Steve Harvey. This is my first year at Rock Ridge Elementary School and I'm truly excited to be here! I arrive here with lots of stories and adventures and a great love of teaching (and learning). I spent about eight years of my adult life working and living and traveling abroad on three different continents, had a career in higher education teaching college classes and doing professional research, wrote an epic mythological novel, was a lawyer who did public policy research and analysis, and started a small nonprofit dedicated to improving public discourse (and ourselves in service to it) that I still run. As a K12 teacher, I've mostly taught at the high school and middle school levels (Social Studies, Spanish, English Language Acquisition, and occasionally Math and Language Arts as well), but I really love working with elementary school students, and I love teaching Spanish! There is nothing more joyful than walking into a class full of smiling young faces ready to learn and laugh and celebrate life together! And teaching and learning Spanish is loads of fun!
When I'm not teaching, I like to swim, cycle, hike (injuries have put the kibosh on trail running, at least for a while), camp, read, write, lay in my hammock, sit by the fire, and hang out with friends and family. Please be sure to check out the "useful links" page, where I have tons of resources available to you and your children, and get in touch with me any time, for any reason ([email protected]).
