"The only valid response when standing back and looking at the universe is one of wonder." Mr. Harkness wrote that in my yearbook when I graduated - words to live by indeed. Thank you sir, you were my favorite teacher. -Liz E

When you learn socials from Mr. Harkness, you cannot go back to any other socials teacher again. Wise, intelligent, helpful, encouraging are just some of the many ways to describe a man who defines the very word "schoolar".

He teaches in a way where his opinions doesn't affect his students'. In fact, it's really difficult to figure out his opinion on a topic without asking him. He encourages his students to have a mind of their own.
