TMI welcomes Dr. Jasmine B. Harris as Associate Head of School

TMI welcomes Dr. Jasmine B. Harris, beginning July 1, as the Associate Head of School for the 2021-2022 school year. Jasmine brings over 27 years of private and public school experience to TMI, most recently serving as Head of School at St. Philip’s Episcopal School in Coral Gables, Florida.

Her experience in education includes involvement at all levels, from teaching to administration. She previously served as the Director of Admission & Enrollment Management at The Lamplighter School; Director of Faculty Recruitment & Community Relations at The Hockaday School; Upper School Assistant Principal at Garland ISD; Campus Instructional Leadership Team Member at Dallas ISD; taught both lower and middle school students; and was the owner of JHB Consulting for 10 years, operating two co-ed, early-childhood schools.

In addition to her roles in education, Jasmine is a faculty member of the Admission Training Institute; has served as a presenter and conference planner for NAIS, FCIS, and the Enrollment Management Association; and has spent over 25 years giving back to the community through the efforts of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., of which she is an active alumnae member. Jasmine holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin, a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership from Texas Women’s University, and a Doctor of Education in Educational Administration from Baylor University.

Her husband, John, will be joining her on campus. They have two sons: Caleb, an alumnus of the Episcopal School of Dallas and currently a junior at the University of Miami and Jayden, a freshman at Palmer Trinity School and rising TMI sophomore. Jasmine shares that she is, “beyond excited to join the TMI Episcopal family! The school has been dedicated to a culture of excellence for over a century, and I am humbled to become a small part of its history. My time away has reminded me that Texas is home. The Tex-Mex, bluebonnets, and rolling mountains of the Hill Country are all reminiscent of my fondest memories. Everything has been, and will always be, bigger in Texas…and I am thrilled to return!”
