Denise began her teaching career at Grace Lutheran as a substitute teacher. Following her heart and God’s call, she pursued her teaching credential and has become a strong member of the Grace teaching staff in the 2nd grade. She feels it is an honor to be entrusted with the task of teaching children about math, reading, writing, and above all else, the love of our Lord. Denise’s prayer is to work side-by-side with her students to make each year one of academic and spiritual growth.

Mrs. Harris and her family have been members of Grace Lutheran Church for over ten years. She and her husband, Chris, have been married since July 1992 and have lived in San Marcos since 1998. Their son, Clayton, is a graduate of Grace and attends Arizona State University. Their daughter, Abby, is in 8th grade at Grace. Chris is a member of the Elders committee and the church and school finance committee. They love going on family vacations, watching movies, playing games together and reading good books. Disneyland is a favorite pastime for them, too. Their family feels it is truly an honor and pleasure to serve the Lord and the related families at Grace.
