      About Mrs. Harris
    blue line  
         Welcome to the 8th grade!  My name is Lorrie Harris and this will be my 25th year of teaching social studies, and my 22nd year at Altadena Middle School.  I was born in Tempe, Arizona a really long time ago.  I graduated from Marcos de Niza high school, and then went on to attend Arizona State University (home of the Sun Devils).   I graduated Magna Cum Laude from ASU, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in secondary social studies education.  I LOVE teaching social studies, but have also taught other things along the way, such as  Language Arts, Theatre, Science, and Speech.
         When I am off duty, I like to spend my time reading all kinds of things and listening to music.  I also enjoy camping, swimming, and hanging out in the great outdoors.   
     
    I look forward to an awesome year with you!  Social Studies ROCKS!
