Mrs. Jeanne Harris
The 2016-2017 school year is not only Mrs. Harris's first year at James Simons, but it is also her first year as a school librarian. She loves her new James Simons family, and she is proud to work in a place that creates such a peaceful, productive environment for teachers and students to work and learn.
Mrs. Harris is a Charleston native, having lived in the West Ashley area since birth. She spent six years away at school where she earned her B.A. in English from Winthrop University in 2014 and her M.S. in Library Science from UNC Chapel Hill in 2016. She is happy to finally be back in Charleston working in a profession that she loves more everyday. When forced to choose just two, her two biggest career passions are collecting diverse children's literature and supporting teachers.
In her free time, you will find Mrs. Harris doing a number of both indoor and outdoor activities. Her favorite hobbies are running, hiking, kayaking, reading, sewing, and snuggling with her cat, Hammy.
