Lanita Harris (’91) was named Metro-Nashville Public Schools’ high school teacher of the year. Harris teaches English at Hunters Lane High School.
“My love of the written word and my desire to share that love with others continually renews my joy of being a lifelong teacher and learner,” Harris said. “I want students to realize the opportunities a solid education can provide for them.”
Harris will advance to statewide competition and the winners at the state level will advance to the national competition.
