I have lived in Columbia County most of my life.  I have been married for 5 years and we have a beautiful blended family of five children.  Their names are Halleigh-Ray Harris, Camden Harris, Jayse Brinkley, Ruby Harris and Sadie Brinkley.  Halleigh-Ray attends Rollins College playing volleyball and the other four are still in high school.  Two of my children attend Belmont.  Belmont has been a blessing for our family. 
Mrs. Harris has been in education for over 15 years.  Teaching many different grade levels and subjects most of her career. She decided to go back to school to get her degree in Educational Leadership six years ago.  She served as an Instructional Coach for five years at an elementary school and one year in a middle school.  During this time she became a certified Instructional Coach.  She served as the Secondary Instructional Coach at Belmont Academy before becoming an Assistant Principal. She has a love for education and a passion for helping students and teachers succeed.  In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and enjoying some fun in the sun.
