Hi, my name is Mr. Harlan. I am in my sixth year teaching in the Monroe County School District. I have taught four years at Gamaliel Elementary School with this being my second year at Monroe County Middle School. I am the 6th grade Health and Physical Education Teacher. I am the head coach of the boys 7th and 8th grade football team and assistant varsity basketball coach. I Graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2009 with a bachelor degree and then in 2011 with a masters degree in physical education. I recently earned my rank 1 in administration from the University of the Cumerlands. Being active with sports and exercising is something that I have always found fun and enjoyable. I feel lucky to be able to teach students the skills they need to live an active lifestyle in hopes that they will stay active throughout life and reap the many benefits a healthy lifestyle can offer.
My mission is to live each day to the fullest, while being a positive influence on everyone around me through kindness, honesty, and respect. To support those around me so they can reach their goals. To educate my students on how to live a health and active lifestyle and become positive members of society.
