Mr. Harris was a great teacher who always tried involve fun in his learning techniques . if it wasn’t for him I probably wouldn’t have learned anything during junior high we were so involved in having friends and doing fun things at school. School was second-best he always made it first and for most we always enjoyed his class we sure are going to miss you Mr. Harris

Mr. Harris was my 6th grade teacher. I still remember the Renaissance fair and how he also let us listen to his transistor radio during rainy recess days! Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.
