Cookie Harris

Sacred Studies Teacher

Appointed in 2017

I am so excited to be joining the St. George Episcopal Church and School family! I grew up in San Antonio and in the Diocese of West Texas. I have a deep love and passion for the Episcopal Church and the welcoming nature of who we are as a church. I am especially passionate about providing kids with a safe and fun place to learn more about the Bible, our relationship with Our Creator and how to extend that love out to others.

I attended the University of Mississippi and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with two minors in History and English. I also received my Master’s Degree at Ole Miss in Curriculum and Instruction. I had my first teaching job in the Delta region of Mississippi and worked at the University as a recruiter for the School of Education. After my time in Mississippi, I sold my belongings and moved to a country I had recently fallen in love with—Haiti.

While in Haiti, I helped develop an ESL program and curriculum for a school in Gressier, Ouest, Haiti. I also received guardianship of two beautiful girls – Robi and Sherly. I spent three beautiful years in Haiti and just recently moved back to San Antonio this past spring. Robi and Sherly received academic scholarships to TMI- The Episcopal School of Texas and have just recently started their freshman and sophomore years.

I am beyond excited to be able to share my experiences with your community as well as the faithfulness of God that I have personally seen over and over again. I cannot wait to bring my passion and love for the Bible and our world into the classroom and share it with many of your children. I have high hopes for this school year and look forward to meeting you all!
