Teri Harrison

Second Grade Teacher

Appointed in 2010

I bring to St. George my love for children and my passion for teaching.  I believe childhood is a time of wonder; an adventure that grows into a life-long quest for knowledge that fosters wisdom through one’s experiences.  I invite each child to be an active participant in his/her education and to embark on a journey of discovery that is encouraged with patience and with self-dignity.

It is with gratitude that I accepted a teaching position in a Christian community where high standards are welcomed and are recognized in the many successes of the St. George children.
