1st Grade - Mr. Harrison


Hello.  My name is Jim Harrison. I am a graduate of St. Cloud State University and I have a master’s degree in elementary education (birth through sixth grade).  I have taught at every grade level from pre-school to sixth grade. I am currently teaching first grade at Glacial Hills Elementary School. This will be my seventh year in the first grade position at Glacial Hills.   I have been an elementary school teacher for 15 years, and this is my tenth year at Glacial Hills Elementary.  I have two daughters, ages 13 and 10.  I have been married for 20 years and live in Alexandria. I am an avid outdoors person and look forward to sharing my love of the outdoors with students.

A look ahead:  each student will be a VIP (very important person) and share information with the class; Polar Express; Flat Stanley; making gingerbread houses with fourth grade; various read-a-louds (Charlotte’s Web, 16 Flat Stanley books, How to Eat Fried Worms and James and the Giant Peach), school-wide reward trips, working in cooperation with Holly Ridge Residents and Royal Reader (each student will be a Reading King or Queen for the day).

 Please call, email or send me a note if you have any questions or concerns.  My phone number is 239-3840 ext. 227 and my email is jharrison@glacialhills.org
