Meet Our Faculty
Mr. Tom Harris
Teddy Roosevelt once said, 'The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.' As a Middle School Social Studies teacher at Highland I strive to pass on a love and appreciation of history to help enable students in their life successes. I am fortunate to have been part of the Highland community for many years as a guest teacher in my previous role as Executive Director for the Fauquier Community Alliance for Drug Rehabilitation and Education from 2003 to 2014.
In addition to teaching, I have shared my love of the outdoors through the creation of my own non-profit called The Muddy Tracks Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping youth develop leadership skills through outdoor teaching programs. I earned my B.S. in Secondary Education/Social Studies from the University of Maine. Go Black Bears!
