Mrs. Tanya Sankey
Welcome to Dr. Bernard A. Harris, Jr. Middle School! My name is Tanya Sankey, and I am a 6th grade ELAR teacher. This 2020-2021 school year marks my 26th year in education. Fun Fact- I opened the school in 2006, so this year will be my 15th year at Harris. I'm an original "Hard Hat" as we are sometimes called.
My amazing teaching career began in 1995 in Fort Stockton, Texas. I was afforded the opportunity to teach and coach in my own hometown, so it was an exciting experience for me. After a few short years in Fort Stockton, a door opened up in the South Texas area, so I decided to spread my wings and leave my immediate family behind. During my career, I have taught and coached for Seguin I.S.D. and Driscoll MS. In 2006, I was hired to teach 8th grade English at Harris MS. Since I have been on staff, I have taught G/T English and 6th-8th grade ELAR. Currently, I teach 6th grade ELAR Block and Reading Workshop. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from Sul Ross State University and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Concordia University in Austin.
I have a gorgeous extended family that takes my breath away. When I have free time, you might find me reading, writing and revising my work, perhaps baking a pie or decorating a cake, hanging out with my family, or chatting with family and friends.
I am thrilled about this school year. All I can say is...We are going to rock! We are Harris Hawks! With hard work, there are NO limits!
