Christian Education/Faith Formation Director
E-mail Amy Harlow

Hello! My name is Amy Harlow. I have lived here in Haddam most of my life and am raising my family here now too. I have a son Alex,15, and a daughter Sadie,11. I have been a licensed dental hygienist for 14 years and truly love my career. In my “free” time I enjoy camping, fishing, kayaking, hiking and gardening. I also love making costumes of all sorts and sewing. My life is very full and while I have energy, I want to do it all! I have a truly supportive family including my boyfriend, of eight years, Brian. I hope that through my teaching I am able to encourage the children to open their hearts and minds to the beauty of faith.
