      I am Harsha Cole. I have a Masters Degree of Science with emphasis in Physician Assistant Studies. I worked as a family medicine Physician Assistant for 4 years and as an Emergency Room PA for 15 years before deciding to stay home full time and homeschool my children. We prayed for a long time before we decided to enroll our two children at Floral Crest. I have always been very active in ministries, especially children's ministry. I love teaching and helping children grow in their confidences and skills. I teach in the pre-kindergarten class in the afternoon and teach art on Wednesdays. When not in school, I love to cook, garden, read and spend time with my family.
