Outstanding Kindergarten Teacher
Haley is a master at organization and regularly shares the lessons and artifacts that she works so hard to provide for her own class with the rest of her grade level. She is always the one that takes the new teacher under her wing and takes the time to answer questions and check to make sure everything is going smoothly. Any time I ask her to respond to an e-mail from a colleague from out of town, she responds with cheerful suggestions and insight. She gives unselfishly of her time to her colleagues.
The thing about Haley is that she is also a wonderful mother who keeps her family time sacred. She manages a nuclear family with several children of her own and even has time for foster children. She is, in every way, a model of what teachers today offer to their children in the classroom and to our society in general. It is such an honor to teach and learn beside teachers like Haley, who make me proud to be an educator.
