Annapolis, MD, February 9, 2011, Robert Edgar Nelson Harder, retired Teacher for District of Columbia Public Schools’ Theodore Roosevelt High School, has been recognized by Elite American Educators for dedication, leadership and achievements in secondary education. Privy to many changes in the education field, Mr. Harder enjoyed a rich and colorful 33 years as a teacher. He concluded his career in 1993 at Theodore Roosevelt High School, where he taught geometry, algebra and applied mathematics. As an educator, Mr. Harder was noted for his open, supportive approach; always one to see the positives, he was emphatic about recognizing and nurturing his pupils’ talents, regardless of the areas in which these may lie. Positivism continues to be a guiding principle in Mr. Harder’s life. Now officially in retirement, he focuses his energies on ministry and volunteer work with the Community of Christ Church. Having reaffirmed his commitment to Christ, he has made it his mission to spread the Good News and make others’ lives better. He considers his willingness to listen to be the most useful attribute that he acquired from his time as a teacher. Mr. Harder earned a Master of Education in 1966 and a Bachelor of Science in education in 1961, both from the University of Maryland. He also obtained an Associate of Arts in 1958 from Graceland University. An active retiree, he is often found duckpin bowling, singing with the Heritage Harbour Chorus, playing tennis at the Heritage Harbour Golf and Country Club, and acting in various dramatic productions.
