Mrs. Whitney Harrison

2nd Grade Teacher

My name is Whitney Harrison, and I am proud to be a Coats Elementary Yellow Jacket!!  I am from Lillington,NC. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Fayetteville State University!

This will be my first year at Coats Elementary after my tenure as Lead Teacher at The Goddard School of Holly Springs.

I have a true passion for working with our youngest learners!!  Helping each child progress in all areas of their development—academic, social, language, and motor—is a challenge that I am honored to accept daily.  I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment. 

Personally, I have been married for 4 glorious years and have four fantastic boys Miguel Jr. (9), Ruben (8), Kai'lan (7), and Montana.  We love to watch our kids' sports—basketball, and football! I also enjoy shopping, traveling, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.

I look forward to working together with you as partners in your child’s growth and development!!
