Mr. Paul Harris

My Name is Paul Harris and I am the High School/8th grade History/Geography teacher at Woodson Independent School District. I also coach many different sports for high school and junior high cowboys and cowgirls. My family and I are excited to be a part of the team and look forward to a great year of learning and having fun. I am married to the former Miss Renee Gober of Throckmorton and we have three children: Will, Elaina, and Ellie.

I grew up around Olney and Throckmorton (THS class of 1993) and I believe this is a great place to raise children and place them around people with the same morals and values that we teach in our home.

I spent 20 years as a United States Marine, with three combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. I had the pleasure of serving with some of the finest Americans and I am humbled to have been a part of and lead such incredible warriors.

During my time as a Marine, I went to school at night and earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC (outside Raleigh-Durham). I also earned a Master's degree in International Relations from Troy State University located in Alabama.

After I retired from the Marine Corps, I owned a business in the DFW metroplex and I realized early on that I was not satisfied and I wanted to find a way to help young people. I now look forward to helping our students and community excel in learning, sportsmanship, and shaping young men and women for their future in whatever endeavor they chose.

I also believe that attitude is everything and a rising tide lifts all ships. I will challenge all of my students to be the tide that raises their teammates and classmates. Never make it about yourself!

Go Cowboys and Cowgirls!
