Mrs. Emily Harris
I was born and raised just down the road in Athens, Alabama. I graduated from Athens High School then went on to attend Auburn University, where I graduated with a degree in Chemistry Education. Besides teaching, I enjoy Bible study, gardening, cooking/baking, song-writing, and spending time with family. I am married to my best friend, Will, who works as a community pharmacist in Ardmore and Athens.
I've worked with chemistry content and students for a long time. In Auburn, I worked in different chemistry settings as a one-on-one tutor, a coordinator of weekly review sessions, and an assistant in a blended learning classroom. I then interned in chemistry classes at Auburn High School in Auburn, Alabama.
I've known that I've wanted to be a teacher for a long time because I enjoy helping students reach their full potential and succeed in typically challenging classes. I am passionate about what I teach, but even more passionate about who I teach - my students.
I welcome parent/student communication! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns by email.
I'm looking forward to a great year of learning and growing together!
