Mrs. Susan Harris
Greetings! My name is Susan Harris and I will be your child's teacher this school year. This school year is my 19th year as a teacher and my 8th year teaching first grade. In the past, I have taught elementary, middle, and high school but first grade is my favorite grade. I love teaching all of the subjects but math is my absolute favorite subject.
I am a military child, military spouse, and have lived and taught all over the world including in Germany and South Korea. My family and I moved here from Camp Humphreys, South Korea, where I taught first and fifth grade.
My dad was stationed here at Ft. Leonard Wood twice when I was a child and I graduated from Waynesville High School. I earned my bachelors degree from Truman State University and masters degrees from Northwest Missouri State, the University of Colorado, and the University of Central Missouri. I am working on my Educational Specialist degree from the University of Missouri as an Elementary Mathematics Specialist.
My husband, Willie, is a military police officer. We have two children, Cameron, who is 14 and Skylar, who is 11. Both of my kids play competitive soccer and wrestle so we spend most of our time traveling to their sports events. 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!
