Harmony Liff started at Morris Catholic in the fall of 2020 teaching marine science and environmental science. Previously, she taught at another Catholic School where she taught chemistry and honors chemistry. Prior to beginning her teaching career, Ms Liff spent five years in Honolulu, Hawaii working as a marine biologist for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. There she worked to collect data on fishery sustainability and participated in a shark tagging project studying the effects of fishing on shark populations. Ms Liff is a Magna Cum Laude graduate from Rider University where she obtained both a Bachelor of Science in marine science and a Bachelor of Arts in fine arts/dance. Ms Liff continued her studies at the University of South Carolina where she obtained her Masters Degree in marine science. Her research there used remotely sensed satellite data and field study samples to determine long term effects of climate change on intertidal species. Originally from Vermont, she enjoys spending time outside, especially at or on the ocean, is a distance runner, and continues to take dance classes in her spare time.
