Mr. Thomas Backus

It is great to be part of a member of the team of dedicated educators at South Harnett Elementary.  I have been working in the field of education for over fifteen years and worked in private and public schools, and taught Kindergarten up through eighth grade classes.  I have experience in both AIG and EC classes as well as enjoy being a part of the learning experience at all levels.

Here at South Harnett, we are dedicated to working together as a staff and along with the community. We strive to promote learning in a safe, welcoming, and cooperative environment.  If you are interested in volunteering or have questions or comments, feel free to contact me at the school.
