Trinity Harris

Welcome to Ms. Harris' 5th Grade Class Page!

Hello!  My name is Trinity Harris and I am looking forward to beginning my third year at OKES.  I previously taught Kindergarten and am excited about this new journey in 5th grade!  I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Lee University and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Tennessee Tech.
I have 3 children... Christopher (26), Sidney (16), and Ian (15), and we live in Dayton, TN.  My greatest passions in life are my family, teaching, traveling, and Tennessee Vol football!
I look forward to helping my students reach their academic goals while fostering their individual needs.  We will be doing hands-on activities, thinking creatively, and participating in discussions to encourage higher-level thinking all year long! 
I strive to create a classroom environment where my students feel safe and loved... EVERYONE deserves to feel like SOMEONE SPECIAL!
