Hart, a 2013 graduate of Fort Atkinson High School, will be starting her junior year this fall at Bradley University in Peoria, Ill. where she is an undergraduate majoring in elementary education. Hart first found her passion working with children in Fort Atkinson, both as a volunteer helping teachers in the summer school program and acting as a teen instructor for the popular Safety City course from 2006 to 2011. An English professor at Bradley wrote of Hart, “Her analytical ability, clean prose style, engaging personality, and strong sense of responsibility make her just the sort of teacher one hopes to find in the best classrooms.” After graduating from Bradley in 2017, Hart hopes to find a teaching position in a school district where she can make a real difference.
