Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome parents! I am Juanita L. Harris. I graduated from the illustrious Alabama A & M University with a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition & Hospitality Management and Master’s degree in Family & Consumer Sciences with a concentration in Nutrition. I have had the pleasure of working in the hospitality industry for over fourteen years as a Banquet Supervisor at the Hilton and as Catering Manager for Aramark @AAMU. Therefore, I bring actual real life work experiences to the forefront in my hospitality classes. I teach them soft skills, computer literacy, event planning, customer service interviewing and management skills. In addition, with the assistance of the Academy of Hospitality & Tourism here at Wenonah High School, we are able to give them hands-on experience through numerous job shadowing opportunities and paid internships. I want to see our students college and career ready.
“As a teacher I aspire to instill knowledge, hope and a desire for students to achieve their goals. The obstacles they face on a daily basis seem almost insurmountable. I cannot as an educator allow them to give up on their dreams. I encourage them to push forward with a momentum to move mountains. I want them to continue to thrive in the face of adversity!
“Together we can soar!”
Juanita L. Harris, M. S.
