Mr. Harris is very excited to be starting his calling to teach at Wasatch Charter School and joining the Grade 3 team in the Sequoia Class. While spending the last two years in the Waldorf community as a parent and husband and most recently as a Substitute Teacher for the last five months, he continues to feel the strong sense of community and values, particularly the school’s dedication to building our children’s capacity to think and strengthening the will to persevere in any environment. He is looking forward to embed these values in his own teaching practices and continue his professional development.
Before joining Wasatch Charter, Mr. Harris had the honor of serving our country as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps for over 20 years, spending time across the United States and overseas in places like Japan, Tonga, Thailand, Germany, Romania, Spain, Italy, and Iraq. During this time and prior, he has been blessed with positive, kindhearted leadership and love from my parents, teachers, and military leaders. They all focused on capacity to persevere and think. Hence, he will continue that trajectory for our children while nurturing a collaborative learning environment built on trust and compassion where everyone is treated with dignity and respect regardless of his or her positions, views, interests, and experiences.
Mr. Harris completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Utah with a B.S. in Mass Communications and my Master’s at the University of San Diego in Global Leadership. Outside of school, he enjoys spending time with my family, exercising, reading and recently learning to play the piano.
