Mrs. Amy Harder


Welcome to Mrs. Harder's English classes! 

I am excited to work with you all in the upcoming year. This is my 8th year at Clayton High School and my 18th year of teaching. I grew up in Franklin County and went to Bunn High School. I earned a BA in English from the University of North Carolina (Go Heels!) in 2001, and became National Board certified in 2011. 

I currently live in Clayton with my husband, my daughter Emily, my son Alex, and our dog Scout.
