Woodward Teacher of the Month – Jason Harrison – Presented by Brian Cook & Kindra Cox Keller Williams Realty Elite

While teachers are responsible for helping their students learn about specific subject matters, they also share their knowledge about everyday life and help prepare young people for the real world. Jason Harrison teaches at Woodward High School and has been an educator since 1997. Harrison currently teaches just about every age at Woodward High.

“I teach freshmen Physical Science and Earth Science to juniors and seniors,” Harrison said.

Harrison was first inspired to join the teaching profession by family members. He wanted to join the profession and help inspire others similarly to what he had experienced himself.

“I had two aunts who were teachers,” Harrison said. “They made learning fun so I accepted that as a challenge to continue the tradition.”

As of this year Harrison has been teaching at Woodward Public Schools for 26 years and still enjoys the new experiences that the job provides and getting to help young people.

“My favorite part about the students is helping them learn responsibility,” Harrison said.

While Harrison focuses on teaching his students the fundamentals of sciences, there is one skill that he tries to teach his students every year that applies to every facet of life: common sense.

Over his two plus decades of teaching experience Harrison has adapted his teaching style to be adaptive and keep up with student needs. Every year he tries to come up with new and fun ways to help prepare his students. Harrison knows that tests, and grades are important, but he tries to make the experience an enjoyable one and wants to see his students have fun while they learn. Having fun while learning is often the most successful way to keep students active and engaged.

Outside of the classroom Harrison enjoys traveling and exploring new cities. He is always looking forward to making new memories with his friends and family as well as with the students and community in Woodward.
