Harris will spend the next year in preparation to open the facility. She said her departure was bittersweet, given how much she will miss her students and staff in Bryan, but the move to Georgetown also puts her close to family and a new baby niece.
Harris began her teaching career as a Spanish instructor at Jane Long and was promoted through administrative positions to principal. She has successfully led the school as principal for the past seven years and has overseen Jane Long’s popular and academically rigorous INQUIRE Academy for gifted and talented students.
Superintendent Tommy Wallis thanked Harris for her love of children, her leadership and her high standards for academic excellence and campus management.
A survey has been released to allow parents, community members and staff an opportunity to share the traits they'd like to see in Jane Long’s next principal. The campus, currently serving grades 6-8, will transition to become an intermediate school (grades 5/6) in the Fall of 2017.
