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 Bachelor's Degree in Human Development, with a Focus on Children & Family. After working a short time in a group home for troubled youth, I decided to work 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. In my free time; we do enjoy traveling as a family. I am also cheer mom, a baton mom, a scout mom, a swim mom, and basically an unpaid mom-mobile chauffeur. As often as I can I sneak away to pedal my bike at the Santos Trails while listening to P!NK (at full volume) to get away from my "real-life" responsibilities. They can't find me if they can't catch me! Maybe???
Regardless, I am blessed every day 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.
