Mrs. Marie Harmon is easily a favorite at Legacy Christian. Though she has been teaching for 25 years, this marks her fourth year teaching all levels of high school English at Legacy. When asked about her favorite part of teaching she said she enjoys relationships with her students and watching them improve their writing skills.
Mrs. Harmon’s birthday is January 29, and she grew up in Arizona with one older brother. “I was not raised in a Christian home,” Mrs. Harmon stated when asked about her testimony. “When I was fourteen, a friend invited me to youth group. The next year I gave my life to Christ at a youth winter retreat. There is no other reason that I am here today as a Christian teacher but for God’s amazing grace.” She went to college at Cedarville University. She and her husband have been married for twenty-eight years and have eight children, three of whom have graduated from Legacy and the rest of whom attend the school. Mrs. Harmon’s fun fact about herself is, “I try to read a book a month, and this year I’ve read sixteen books.”
