About Mrs. Harris
I graduated from Vinton County High School in 1995 and Bradford School in 1996. I decided to take time to start a family, and now have two wonderful sons, Tyler and Gunnar Barnett. Tyler is 19 years old and is attending the United States Air Force Academy in Coloroda Springs, CO. Gunnar is 16 years old and a junior at VCHS.
I worked at the Vinton County National Bank for two years and then took a position in the Engineer's Office, at the Vinton County Courthouse, for 13 years.
In 2005, I decided to return to college to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher. While working full-time and managing to balance my family, career, and schooling, I graduated from the University of Rio Grande in 2011, with a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Business Education. In May, 2013 I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning (MATL), Technology Integration from Nova Southeastern.
I have been teaching business and computer courses at Vinton County High School for seven years.
I love teaching students and preparing them for life outside of high school. I strive to use my life experience and educational training to motivate and guide my students toward success. My teaching goal is to help students realize their own potential and strive for self-improvement. I hope students use this site to stay informed and prepared. I hope parents use this site to see how my lesson objectives relate to other subjects and real-world experiences.
