Christine Harris

“She is such a kind hearted teacher. I love the way she makes every kid in her class so comfortable so that they can share anything and everything. My girl was a little shy and didn’t speak much, but she made her so confident and vocal. I really appreciate her efforts.”

“Our family moved here from another state and our son was homeschooled last year. With all the changes and being in a classroom environment for the first time he struggled emotionally with a lot of change. Mrs. Harris is the perfect teacher for him. She effectively communicated some of the struggles he was having as well as helping to find solutions. Our son loves school and it's clear that she is a big part of his success.”

“I want to thank Mr. Shaver because he helps a lot and he calls on people a lot in a nice voice. He's nice. In math he calls on people that have been raising their hand quietly. I love school and being in his class.”

Her hard work, dedication and attention to details when it comes to students' work deserves all the praise. We will miss her and the rest of the awesome Marshall elementary school staff. We wish her more success in life. RPS 205 is lucky to have teachers like Ms. Worley.”
