Get to Know Mrs. Harris
About me: I grew up in western New York state, outside of Rochester. I went through the whole Spencerport Central School District, kindergarten to graduation. I attended Oswego State University for four fabulous years, graduating with a Bachelors in Human Development, with a Focus on Children & Family. After working a short time in a group home for troubled youth, I decided working in a traditional school system was the place for me. I returned to get my Masters in School Guidance Counseling from Roberts Wesleyan College while working full time.
In 2005, I relocated to Brooksville, where I had a job as a school counselor at Hernando High School. A short time later I married my husband, Jesse. We decided it was better for our family to be in a larger community, when I was offered the job at Vanguard it was a perfect fit! Since then we have welcomed our beautiful daughters Shaylee and Sydnee. They feel they own the school and are often around campus after school or in the evenings. They are excited to be Lady Knights someday (too) soon. We found a wonderful extended family at Vanguard.
I am blessed everyday to spend time with my own family and with my Vanguard family. I would even probably still be here if I won the lottery tomorrow! It is great to be a Vanguard Knight and I wouldn't change it for anything, I truly love my job.
