Hello, I am Daeon Harris, the principal at Valley Hi Elementary School. My goal as your principal is to provide a safe, warm, and supportive environment where all children will learn. I believe that school and home must work together for students to learn. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with your questions, comments and concerns. I would also like to encourage you to join PTA and become a volunteer. Being involved in school can make a huge difference in helping your children reach their goals.
I've been an educator for over 23 years in Northside schools. As a classroom teacher, I taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades at several NISD elementary schools. I also served as an Academic Support Teacher in reading and math where I worked with kindergarten through fifth grade students. I've been a school administrator for the past nine years and love working with students, teachers and their families.
Valley Hi is a Title 1 School. This Federal Program provides additional funds to serve schools with large numbers of economically disadvantaged students. Title 1 is a school-wide program which allows us to hire extra staff, like our reading and math support teachers and our Communities in School specialist, and purchase extra supplies and programs that help our students be more successful. Please read the documents on the side of this page that explain more details about this program.
