Harris has been a public school educator since 2001. He is currently an assistant principal in the Cedar Hill school system. He has experience as a High School Principal, a coordinator of Alternative Programs, a biology teacher, and a coach in the Cedar Hill, Itasca, Hillsboro, and Wilmer-Hutchins public school systems.

Additionally, he has coached football at the collegiate level.

He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education and a Master’s degree in School Leadership, both from Abilene Christian University. He also holds a Superintendent’s Certificate from the State of Texas.

Pete Amy, President of the WOCCISD Board of Trustees, said, “I am very excited about bringing Mr. Harris to our District. He already has an entry plan developed and is ready to put it into place upon his arrival. He will also bring a great deal of enthusiasm.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Silvia Martinez for her leadership during this interim. She has kept the District on course during the time we have been searching for a superintendent,” Amy said.
Harris and his wife, Shalawn, have two children.
