Mrs. Susan Harris

Greetings! My name is Susan Harris and I will be your child's teacher this school year. I am very excited to be teaching first grade at East Elementary. I am a military child, military spouse, and have lived and taught all over the world. As a child, my family and I were stationed here twice and my parents retired here, so I call Waynesville home and am so happy to return. 

My husband, Willie, and I have two children, Cameron, who is 11 and Skylar, who is 7. My familly and I recently moved here from Camp Humphreys, South Korea, where I taught first grade. In the past, I have taught elementary, middle, and high school. First grade is my favorite grade and I love teaching all of the subjects but math is my absolute favorite subject. When I am not at school, I enjoy traveling, gardening, and crafting.

First grade is a time of growth and transition as students become more confident readers, writers, scientists, and mathematicians. I believe in creating a strong school-home partnership and you are always welcome to volunteer. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me!
