Kristen Hardin is a really, really dishonest.
Since 2011, ABC Montessori has been selling completely fradulent credentials to the community – making her seem like this highly educated, extremely potent asset. Kristen has in fact created a Post-Doctoral resume out of thin air, and even went as far as provided the school with a manufactured letter from Emory, supporting her claims of acceptance into their program. She has been ABC’s “Upper Elementary” program for years, and has recently been listed as “administration”. They have been altering her profile bio for years on the website – changing her specialization and degree focus, and toggling her job history, and trying to hide the fact that they had been telling parents she was a doctor.
Below we have copies of the resume and letter that was located in her staff files at ABC Montessori. Its almost unbelievable that ABC didn’t check these credentials. Instead, Larry Morey highlighted and noted the things he would use to get more parents to trust the school – all the handwriting and highlighting you see in these copies was done by him. He refers to her as their “Kentucky Racehorse” on a document that is supposed to be her admission into Emory’s phD program, with a header copied on that says “Emory Healthcare” as opposed to any college of specific study – and also the document is full of grammatical, formatting and spelling errors that would never come from a university such as Emory.
A highlight of some of her “Awards” and Education that she has included in her resume:
- Postdoctoral Fellowship at Children’s Healthcare Network from 2012 – 2014
- Emory Austism Research Team
- Teacher of the Year for Georgia in Special Education and English in 2012
- Womens Writer Award in 2007
- UGA full academic and soccer scholarship in 2012
- Honors DUAL BA in Education and English with special concentration in Psychology and Special Education and a MINOR in biological science from University of Georgia with a 4.0 Grade Average.
- Alpha Mega Alpha Honors Society
These credentials are OUT OF THIS WORLD. SO out of this world, that she had to use Chase, her now husband who has no bachelors degree nor teaching certificate, as a reference for her Montessori training, which are the documents noted below. She references her phD here as well, this is her handwriting, where is is pretending to be Chase. This also came directly from her file.
She writes with her own handwriting “I have worked both as a teacher and a medical professional”. This simply means that her entire acceptance into this program, if it occurred, was based on lies.
As if this isn’t enough, she even had a business card created to help the school share and use these credentials to validate her as a specialist.
This is an email, sent from Kim and Larry to the web developer at the time to place on the website for Kristen Hardin’s bio. Here she also references that she graduated at the top 5% of her class at Emory on an Autism research team.
Oh, that’s not all. Take a look at this clip from an interview done by ABC with the Southside Showcase. Even the host is amazed at her credentials – where she states she was doing her residency and is introduced as having a phD in medicine.
I think its fair to say that we have checked into all these claims Kristen has made and found zero evidence to support any of it. Emory has confirmed no letter would come formatted in the manner of Kristen’s, and that it would not come on Emory Healthcare Letterhead. Teacher of the Year for Georgia is listed online and easily checked – none of the names Kristen goes by is listed there.
Once ABC got called out, the began changing credentials of Kristen over the years on the website with her degrees and specifications moving about:
Is it okay for this woman to be a teacher, and completely lie about who she is and what her education is? Why won’t ABC address these fake credentials that they used to publicize their school!!! How dare Kimberly Morey and Kristen Hardin sue someone, for exposing this information instead of immediately firing Kristen Hardin.
We have called for the transcripts and degrees of Kristen Hardin, because it is clear that shes capable of fabricating such documents and then walking into a classroom and being trusted to teach children. How do we really know she has any education?
Are you aware that Kristen Hardin has assessed and diagnosed children at ABC? Are you aware that she has been accused of physically, verbally, and emotionally abusing her stepdaughter? What do you really know about Kristen Hardin?
We know she’s been arrested for identity theft before, which could very well support the idea that she is misrepresenting herself completely.
