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. Moore who will be teaching Math and Science. This will be my tenth year at Dixon Elementary.

I moved to North Carolina in 07' 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.  Working with the staff, faculty and parents here at Dixon has been wonderful.  I enjoy surfing, reading and spending quality time with my kids.  I am married and have a eight year old daughter and four year old son. 

Teaching and gearing students to be leaders in this global economy is what I strive for.  I look forward to a great year with all who are involved with your child's success! 

Some parent tips to ensure we have a great year;

Create an account for parent portal.  This is an online program where you can see your child's progress such as missing assignments and late work as well as grades on each assignment.  You can do this by visiting the main office and filling out some paper work or printing the form on the school website and returning it to the office. They will ask to see ID.

Check the school website from time to time for important updates and events as well as my class calendar.

Check student Leadership folders and agenda's routinely for updates, calendars, newsletters and graded assignments.  Make sure to give me your e-mail contact so I can send newsletters and other important information directly to you.  Sign up for my Remind account for frequent updates on your phone.

Feel free to e-mail me with questions and to reply for conferences.  This is my best means of communication.

I look forward to teaching your child and working with you to guide your child through the year.
