• Welcome!
    My name is Lori Harris. I am the Math Specialist at Brookside Elementary. I started my journey in education as a second career.  I have an undergraduate degree in Marketing and went back to school to get a Mathematics Teaching degree.  This is my 12th year in education. I started my teaching career in second grade and transitioned to specialize in math in grades four and five.  I then moved to my current position as the Math Specialist.
    I am a product of the Anoka-Hennepin School District.  My five siblings and I attended Washington Elementary, Fred Moore/Sandburg, and then Anoka High School.  My dad was also a teacher in this district for over 35 years. 
    I live in the Anoka area.  I am married to my husband, Peter, and have two adult children.  My son, Cole, is a Mechanical Engineer, and my daughter, Janae, is currently a second year teacher at University Avenue in Blaine.  My family loves spending time up north together (including our small dog, Jewel, who is about 3 pounds).  
    I am looking forward to working with many of our students this year in math! 
    There are many ways I support Brookside students...
    • small group interventions
    • co-teaching with classroom teachers
    • supporting the new Bridges Math Curriculum implementation
    • supporting teachers with mathematics
     Please contact me if there is any way I can help you or your child grow in math!
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! Together we can help your child achieve success!
