“What an honor it is to come to CMCSS as an instructional leader at Rossview Middle School,” Mrs. Harris shared. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with the staff, building relationships with the school community and most importantly, supporting student learning. As a UT-Knoxville graduate, it’s exciting to return to the Volunteer State for this amazing opportunity. Thank you to the CMCSS Human Resources staff and Central Office administration for extending this invitation to me as my family transitions from Wisconsin to Tennessee.”
