Hardy Oak Elementary



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Nadine Golias

I am so excited to be your child’s Pre-K class here at Hardy Oak. 

I have taught at Hardy Oak for the past 10 years. 

Prior to Pre-K, I taught special Education in my home country, England, before moving here.  I have also taught ALE, ECSE and pre-school in a private school.   

My husband, Paul and I  met 28 years ago in Virginia. We have 4 children, 

My son Joshua is 26 years old, Ashley is 24 yrs old, Savanna is 20 ys old and Lilly is 16 yrs old.

I love to travel and spend time with my family.  I can’t wait to have your sweet kiddo in my class.
