Hello. My name is Kaity Harris and I am the proud principal of Gateway Pointe Elementary School! My passion for teaching and learning began as a child and is still the guiding factor in my life, as I come from a family of educators. I’m an Arizona Wildcat, with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University.
While playing collegiate soccer for The University of Arizona, I met my husband, Gilbert Harris, who played football for the Wildcats and for the Kansas City Chiefs. We have two children, Sterling and Saige.
Starting this school year, we are adopting the mindset of a No Excuses University
. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares them for college. When schools exhibit a culture of universal achievement
by believing in students, they collaborate
around that belief. During collaboration, they align their standards
as a team. As teams align standards, they need to assess the standards and manage the data
. Then, and only then, can they pursue meaningful interventions
with their students.
The connection between home and school is very important to the success of your child’s education. As a staff we have made this promise to one another and to the students and parents we serve. Throughout this year, we are committed to making decisions that are based on results and represented by data. It is our goal to work together with families to create this mindset. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone 480-279-7710 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
