Welcome to My Classroom

Griffin


My name is Kayla Harris and I will be your child's first grade teacher this year at JP!

Email Mrs. Harris

Background Information/Education: I was born and raised in Kannapolis. I actually attended Jackson Park as a student! I graduated from A.L. Brown in 2011, and received the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Scholarship. I decided to go east and become an East Carolina University Pirate (ARGHHH!!) where I would carry my scholarship and join a cohort of 50 other young people who aspired to be Educators. I graduated in May 2015 with a degree in Elementary Education and an add-on Reading License. I am very excited to apply what I have learned into my classroom! I am also currently working on my Masters in Instructional Technology Education from East Carolina University! 

 
Educational Philosophy/Vision: I believe that every student has the ability to learn if they set their mind to it! I also believe that the teacher can help every student achieve excellence if they meet them right where they are! Getting to know your students is KEY to a successful year!
