Debbie Harris Science

The Houston Museum of Science has selected Debbie Harris, eighth-grade science teacher and Middle School science coordinator, as the recipient of the 2018 Wilhelmina C. Robertson Excellence in Science or Mathematics Teaching Award.

Each year, the award recognizes one kindergarten through fifth-grade science or math teacher and one sixth through twelfth-grade science or math teacher in the Houston area who significantly impact students through exemplary science or mathematics teaching. The award committee cited Mrs. Harris's project-based learning approach and use of real-world issues as "particularly outstanding."

Mrs. Harris will be presented with the award and a $2,000 prize at the museum's Excellence in Science or Mathematics Luncheon in early November. Congratulations, Mrs. Harris! We already knew you were a gem, and now all of Houston does, too.
