Year Appointed: 2015
Hometown: Salem, VA
What's one thing your students don't know about you? I am a Artist/painter and I was awarded 17 Who's Who Among American Teachers awards in 5 years teaching at Garinger High School which is one of Charlotte, NC's most infamous and dangerous inner city schools.
When you're listening to music, who's playing? Neo Soul Playlist (Erykah Badu, DeAngelo) or Smooth Jazz, Old School Hip Hop, R&B
If you didn't teach, what would you be doing instead? I know myself well enough to know what I was put here to do. I am a teacher; I've done several other things and this is what I DO. This IS what I want to do.
What's your favorite North Cross tradition? Simply the environment where excellence is expected and experiencing students actually reaching goals to fulfill destinies set for them before they were born. What could be more satisfying to be a purveyor of knowledge than generational academic success?
Note: Mr. Harris will have a showing of his paintings at the Alexander Heath Contemporary Art Gallery in downtown Roanoke beginning tonight (12/2).
