           Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Desiree DeFrance and I am very excited to have your child at C.C. Hardy Elementary. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Elementary Education. C.C. Hardy has been my home since 2005.  Throughout the years, I have taught pre-k, third grade, and fourth grade. My daughter  and son both spent their elementary years at Hardy.  
        Our 2017-2018 school year will be a spectacular adventure.  We are going to learn many things from one another as we grow into a community of learners.  My goal for all of our fourth grade students, is for the students to love learning and be successful life long learners. Welcome to C.C. Hardy Elementary !
