Mrs. Sharon Harris

4th grade teacher


Courses Taught:

4th grade



I graduated from Troy State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Finance in 1990.  I later returned to college and earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Troy University. I believe that continuing my education is crucial to teaching students, so whenever possible, I participate in professional development opportunities.  In recent years, I have become an Advanced Fellow for the Wiregrass Writing Project, and I am a presenter of workshops for the Troy Regional In-service Center.

This year, I will begin my twelfth year of teaching.  I've been fortunate to have taught 1st, 2nd,  and 4th Grades at Banks School.  This will be my tenth year teaching 4th Grade, and I  look forward to a year full of learning and growing.

Hi!  My name is Sharon Harris, and I teach  4th Grade Language Arts and Science.  I am originally from Leary, Georgia, but I have lived in Troy since moving here to attend Troy State University when I was 18. I earned both my B. S. in Business Administration and M. S. in Elementary Education from Troy University.  I am married to Russ Harris, and we have two children. We also have two "fur babies" that area a huge part of our family. I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family.  I am especially happy when I am relaxing at the beach.
