mr. harris is a very good teacher. he helps prepare you for any type of college course you will be taking in college. i wish more teachers made reading/writing/litature as fun.

He was my favorite teacher out of everyone in high school. Hard and strict (honors), but a good teacher. He'll soften up if you really need help. Wish I could've said good bye.

Harris is major awesome. He definitely needs anger management. But he is so funny. I love it when he talks back to students. He is such a good teacher. But he really needs to go to his therapist more often. (because he has no identity)

He gives us books with alot of depth and meaning to them so it's a bit hard to figure out, but the class is fun but hard. I'm going to miss that class the most.

Mr. Harris is a cool teacher. He's hard, but you learn a lot. Still waiting for those Harris cards and his jokes that make fun of people (don't deny it...)

Mr. Harris may be really scary at first but his class is actually really fun. He may be a hard teacher but that makes us try even harder and learn even more.
