    Ms. Hardy and Mrs. Ledbetter

    Adventure Awaits

    We are delighted to be able to work with your child at Blakely in the upcoming school year as their fourth grade teachers. Combined we bring over 29 years of teaching experiences to our classroom!  Mrs. Ledbetter will be your Monday through Thursday teacher and Ms. Hardy will be your teacher on Friday’s.  We are so excited to be able to learn and grow with you this year!

    Mrs. Ledbetter is eager to return to teaching fourth grade.  When she is not working she is usually enjoying time with her family.  She has a son who is a junior at BHS and a daughter who will be a freshman.  She also has a loving malti-poo, O’Shea, who keeps her on her toes.  Mrs. Ledbetter enjoys playing board games, solving math puzzles, and cheering on her favorite local sports teams.  She spent the summer traveling to Hong Kong, Bali, and China with her family.  She took a trip to Chicago with her son to look at colleges.  When not on an airlplane, Mrs. Ledbetter found herself outside near the water or around a fire pit.  

    This is Ms. Hardy’s first year at Blakely, third year in the district and her fourth year teaching fourth grade.  When Ms. Hardy isn’t at Blakely, she’s often found walking her Bosten Terrier pup, Beans, at one of our island parks or spending time with her family.  She has a son who is a junior at BHS and another in 8th grade at Woodward.  Ms. Hardy spent the summer exploring Washington (from flying fish at Pike Place Market to the bison kisses at the Olympic Farm) with family from California. Ms. Hardy loves to read, swim, dance and join her  boys at their sports events.  Ms. Hardy has a passion for critters and even has a ball python snake named Bubba!
