Mrs. Harris

This is my 18th year teaching.  I am originally from NY where I taught full time for one year and was a substitute for 2 years.  I moved to Fayetteville, NC where I taught 5th grade for a year.  After leaving Fayetteville, I moved to Burlingtpn, where I taught at Andrews Elementary School for 12 years, teaching 3rd and 4th grades.  Last year I taught 4th grade here at South and had a great first year!  I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year.
 
I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from St. Thomas Aquinas College in NY and my master's in Literacy Education at Adelphi University in NY.
 
Shortly after moving to Burlington, I met my husband and we have a 5 year-old son and a dog (who doesn't know he is a dog!).  
 
Since having my son, I have truly learned that trusting anyone with your child is one of the hardest things that you will ever do as a parent.  Thank you for trusting me with your most valuable possession.   I promise to treat your child with dignity and respect.  I promise to challenge your child and teach him/her how to solve problems.  I promise that everyday your child will learn something new.  Some days may be more challenging than others, but we will learn, grow and overcome any challenge that we face. I promise to help your child find the confidence to be a leader in the classroom as well as out of the classroom. 
 
This year looks a lot different from other years, but I promise to work closely with you and your child to ensure that we have a great year.  I am here if you need anything.
