Hello 8th graders and parents!

Welcome to C-18! I will be your child’s 8th grade ELA teacher, and I could not be more excited. My name is Sarah Bobo Harris and this is my second year at DCMS. This is also my second year as a DeSoto County resident. I am from Corinth, MS and moved to Southaven last year. I am a graduate of Mississippi State University with a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Public Relations. I am also finishing up my Master’s degree in Middle Level Education at MSU. I am looking forward to this school year and am excited to help each student have a successful year!

We will be reading a variety of literary genres including short stories, novels, and magazine and newspaper articles. I plan to have class sets of each book your child will need, however if your child is absent, or a slow reader, it may be beneficial to purchase a copy for your home. This will help ensure that your child does not get behind. You can find a calendar containing our daily reading schedule and other important dates on my teacher website.

Please feel free to email me at However, my email may be changing within the first 9 weeks because I got married at the end of the summer, but I will send out a remind101 with the new email address. I highly encourage you to sign up for my Remind101. Simply send a text message to 81010 with the message 7hf86b and you will automatically receive communications with reminders and notifications of important happenings in my class this year. I look forward to working together to ensure the success of your child!
