Ames Harris is a relentless advocate for social equity at Los Osos Middle School. In her humanities classroom and across the school and district she is a courageous voice for underrepresented students. She is the first in the district to try out new strategies to strengthen the district Designated ELD model, ensuring all students are served in a rigorous instructional model. She serves on the district Equity Team, has spearheaded an inclusive LBGTQ+ Club at her school, and has grown staff understanding about gender spectrum. At the heart of her work is a commitment to creating a school where all students belong.
