Hartley H. Harper
My dad use to say, "The two most important decisions you will make in this life are who you will marry....and buying a home".
My name is Hartley Harper. I live in Apollo Beach, Florida. I am married and I have two children in their twenties. I am originally from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I was born and raised there, and did my education there. I have a bachelors degree from Oral Roberts University, in psychology, a masters degree in education from Tulsa University, and two years of administration leadership from University of Central Oklahoma.
I was married quickly after graduation and began to have a family. I chose to be a stay- at- home mom. When I went back to work I chose teaching to be the field by which I felt I could make a positive difference. I was drawn to inner-city youth and quickly found myself immersed in raising the expectations of my students to give them the confidence they needed to learn. I developed a leadership program focused on experiential learning in the classroom. I worked in both middle and high school in Oklahoma City Public Schools. After teaching for 8 years I became an assistant principal in the high school where I taught. It was one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.
In 2015 my husband was offered a promotion which involved moving to Tampa. We took the job and started over here in Florida. I set my sites on changing careers and learning something new. My signature now includes realtor. Since January of 2016 I have been selling homes. It is a wonderful career,and the best part is meeting new people everyday. Instead of the goal being graduation, it is a goal of helping every client find the place they call home. I can't help you with who you chose to marry, but I can help you make a wise decision about a home!
