George Lucas Educational Foundation

Robyn Harris

I have been an administrator for the Anchorage School District for 10 years. I’m the principal of Whaley School, a separate day school for students with acute behavior needs, and 2018 Principal of the Year for the state of Alaska. At one point in my career, I was administrator of 11 sites.

I’m a graduate of Montana State University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and P–12 special education. I have a master’s degree in educational leadership and an education specialist degree in curriculum and instruction.

My favorite quote is, “The kids who need the most love will ask for it in the most unloving of ways.”
