Harrison, Haley
Special Education Teacher
Hey, y'all! My name is Mrs. Haley Harrison, and I am an Interventionist for 6th grade.
This is my third year teaching at Charlotte Middle School.
I attended college at Austin Peay State University where I earned my bachelor's degree in Corporate Communication, and my master's degree in Special Education.
In 2020, I married my amazing husband, Reese, and we moved to Charlotte, TN with our two dogs & kitten.
I love shopping, cooking, and spending my weekends adventuring with family & friends.
As a teacher, I want to help students build confidence, acquire life skills, and set personal goals.
I am so excited for the 2021-2022 school year! GO TIGERS!
