Special Education teacher at Lebanon High School is being recognized by the Lebanon-Wilson Chamber as "Educator of the Month"

It’s no secret that good special education teachers are hard to come by.  Those who are successful must be organized, compassionate, driven, patient, and most of all… have an unwavering desire to help students succeed, and there’s no better example of that, than Lebanon High School’s April Harris.  That’s why the Lebanon-Wilson Chamber of Commerce is recognizing her as September’s “Educator of the Month”. 

Lebanon Principal, Scott Walters, nominated Harris for the award last month because of her tireless work ethic, and her unique ability to develop strong personal relationships with her students.  It isn’t uncommon for Harris to manage as many as 150 Individualized Education Plans at one time, without missing a beat.  Unlike a majority of our teachers, Harris also works throughout the summer, to make sure the more than 400 incoming freshman are positioned to make a smooth transition to high school.  When April isn’t working for the district, she also serves as a mentor for other teachers, who are looking for strategies on how to educate students, while meeting any special accommodations they may have.  Please join us in congratulating April Harris on being recognized this month for her numerous accomplishments.  As Dr. Walters puts it, “She is a strong and proud Blue Devil!”
