"In every bit of honest writing in the world there is a base theme – try to understand men."

John Steinbeck

Colleen Harnett

Welcome!

Welcome to Mrs. Harnett's web site! 

This year begins my sixteenth year as a teacher. I've been teaching English at Tesoro for fourteen years, and I also taught English in Russia for two years with the Peace Corps. I have a bachelor's degree in English and History from Notre Dame, a master's in English from UC Irvine, and a teaching credential from UC Irvine. I teach AP Literature and English I, I'm the advisor for National Honor Society, and I also have a son, John.

As my former students know, I love teaching, I love literature, and I really love essays.

These photos are from the Steinbeck Institute I attended in Monterey with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
