Introducing Dr. Dira Harris


Dr, Harris

Greetings Eagle Nation!

My name is Dira Harris. I am excited, proud, yet humbled to be the newly appointed TRAILBLAZER of River’s Edge Elementary School. As your principal, my goal is to be a FIRE STARTER. I desire to IGNITE learning in the hearts and minds of students and educators. Together, we will INCINERATE the status quo of everyday school environments. We believe in the vision of Clayton County Public Schoolswhich is to prepare ALL graduates to have the skills to pursue and accomplish college, post-secondary training, and/or career opportunities in order to live and compete successfully in a global society.

We will work intentionally to INFLAME the minds of our scholars by incorporating FIERY, engaging and innovative teaching strategies. Student scholars will work interactively and collaboratively to reach learning targets and goals. Our focus will be helping students to take ownership of their own learning.

 Together, with the educators of River’s Edge Elementary, we will work toward the vision of Clayton County Public Schools by FUELING the school climate and learning environment. We will help to bridge the gap between progress and people in order to show continued achievement.  Our focus will be to cultivate teacher passion and purpose, by ensuring teachers have the resources, practice, skillset, and knowledge to be effective.

With our stakeholders, we will work toward BLAZING trails and stepping outside of the box. Our focus will be to collaborate and KINDLE new partnerships that promote overall school improvement.

Your Principal,
