He's a smart man, and is a great person to talk with. However, his teaching skills are vastly inadequate. Do NOT take his course if you are looking to learn a subject from scratch (say, technical drafting). DO take his class if you already are somewhat skilled in a subject. Mr. Harris is an excellent coach and mentor, but his teaching skills are very poor. This allows some to thrive, however it hurts most students who don't have a good foundation in the course they are taking.
I had Mr. Harris for 3 out of my 4 years at Annandale HS and I'd have to say he was the funniest teacher I had. But here's the thing, he didn't teach. He made us learn the material on our own as research to do pointless projects he never grades. "Go to Wisconsin Online!" was the number one thing he would tell you if you didn't know the material. His tests are impossible, but don't worry, they aren't graded anyway.He is very disorganized as well and don't let him catch you playing on the computer
He is a very good teacher to those who make an effort and try. He may be a little disorganized, but is a always willing to help. I have has him for four years through electronics 1 - 3. Those who say he can't teach or other bad things only say that because they took his class either for an easy A or didn't try in his class.
He likes to yell (a lot) and he doesn't teach. He makes you go to the computers and "research" whatever he's supposed to teach you, telling you to write research papers he doesn't read or grade. Very unclear in assignments, and forgetful. He took almost half a year to get some names right. For some reason, he keeps reteaching very basic subjects that we already learned and generally, class is a waste of time. A waste of an elective too.
Easy class only if you r in his good side play online games while he was on the other room yelling at other good teacher thow. Got an A
He's the WORST teacher ever!! He doesn't teach anything. He just repeats some technology terminologies, so that he can be seen as some smart teacher. But, definitely he is NOT!
He is one of the most understanding, considerate, and helpful people I have ever met. He treats his students like they are on the same level that he is, and always has very intersting things to say. I wish every teacher had the spirit/charisma he has.
Please dont change! You are the nicest teacher i've ever had!!!!
