Hello, I am Mrs. Chesterlynn Harris, and I am teaching 5th grade this year at DeZavala Environmental Science Academy. I am so excited to teach English Language Arts and Reading, (ELAR), and social studies. I look forward to planning and delivering rigorous lessons, so that together my students and I will cultivate a love of reading for academic success. My goal is to ensure that every student is provided independent, as well as collective learning tools for academic and social growth. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the students, parents, and community of DeZavala ESA.
My educational career spans over 25 wonderful years. I am blessed to have graduated from Lamar University, with a Bachelors Degree, and also graduated from Stephen F. Austin University with a Masters Degree. Over the course of these years, I have had the pleasure of serving in many different and rewarding roles. As a classroom teacher, I have taught every grade from 1st - 8th, with the exception of 3rd and 6th. I must say that my most rewarding years have been teaching 5th grade. Therefore, I look forward to this 2017-2018 school year, at DeZavala.
