Mrs. Karen Harris
I am so happy to introduce myself as the new Bonny Kate assistant principal and welcome you back for 2019-20 school year! I could not be more thrilled to be part of the Bonny Kate community!
This year begins my 27th year of working in schools. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades, middle school math, and have served as a school improvement consultant, ESL coordinator, and instructional coach. Most recently, I worked at West Hills Elementary as the literacy coach for four years. In each of these roles, my favorite memories are focused on the relationships we developed as we worked toward achieving our goals. I am so excited to get to know everyone in the Bonny Kate community as we begin a new school year and make new memories! I look forward to getting to know our boys and girls!
My husband, Tori, and I have two daughters. Gillian (23) is a 2018 UT graduate and an oncology nurse. Morgan (19) is a sophomore in the engineering school at UT. Go Vols!!! Tori is an Air Force veteran, engineer and science fiction author. It would be safe to say that we love books, reading and school! We are also crazy about our dog, Bizkit, who is a little ShiZon pup.
Finally, I want to extend a big “Thank You!” to the Bonny Kate community for making me feel so welcome and at home! I look forward to meeting you and working together to make this a memorable and special school year.
