Mr. Harris' Biography

Welcome to Fourth Grade!

I hope everyone enjoyed their summer.  My name is David Harris.  I will be teaching fourth grade Social Studies and Language Arts this year and teaming with Ms. Yocum who will be teaching Math and Science. I started teaching in Onslow County in August of 2008.

I moved to North Carolina in 08 from New York where I received my BS Degree in Elementary Education  from the State University College of Oneonta.  I was born and raised in New York but have come to love North Carolina.  I have worked with the staff, faculty and parents at Dixon for the last 13 years and it has been wonderful.  I decided to transfer to Coastal as it is closer to home and provides an exciting opportunity to open a new school.  I enjoy surfing, reading and spending quality time with my kids.  I am married and have a son and daughter. 

Teaching and gearing students to be leaders in this global economy is what I strive for. Coming from Dixon I played a lead role on our Leader in Me Lighthouse Team which received Lighthouse status this past year.  This was a major accomplishment that I was proud to be a part of.  Coastal will be a Leader in Me school as well.  I look forward to being a key member of this team again and help lead us to another Lighthouse status.  The “Leader in Me” is uniform throughout our school and you will see the seven habits posted in every room.  We encourage our students to take leadership of their learning and academics which may develop the whole child and create great habits along the way.

I look forward to a great year with all who are involved with your child's success!
