Mr. Vern Harvey

Hello! I was born in Coeur d’Alene in 1960 (do the math!). I was originally hired in 2001 as a 4th grade teacher at Hayden Meadows. In 2010, I moved to teaching 3rd grade, and since 2017 I've enjoyed being the Art Teacher for all our students. I left Hayden Meadows twice to work as a teacher in the United Arab Emirates. I have traveled all my life, to surrounding areas, Canada, Europe, Australia, The Middle East and, of course, multiple states across our great country, the United States. I have a reputation for being a gardener and I share that experience with all Hayden Meadows students in our greenhouse. Yes, I am married. I have a powerhouse family. My son is a police officer and my daughter-in-law is a first responder firefighter. Community service has always been at the forefront of my family’s character and I am proud of my children for their incredible daily contribution to our community. I must mention, I am also a proud grandfather of Jackson and Nicole.
