Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Haley and I am honored to be a 6th grade English and reading teacher for the 2nd year at Otto Middle School. I look forward to meeting my new students this year and having a fun and productive year.
Previously, I taught ELAR GE and Honors in the Houston area for Spring ISD for three years. I have my bachelor's degree from Youngstown State University in Speech Communication, an MBA in Business Administration, and an M.S. in Organizational Psychology. Many years professionally, I worked in advertising and marketing in newspaper, magazine, radio, and television advertising sales.
I practice yoga, meditation and have travelled internationally to many places in the world to immerse myself in diverse cultures. I value the experience and perspective of many cultures, and love to learn. I would consider myself a lifetime learner and passionate traveler. I have two adult boys and two grandchildren who I love to spend time traveling with, enjoying dinners, and enjoying each other's company.
My professional goal is to assist my students in having a successful academic year and have fun while learning. I encourage my students to continue to grow in a healthy way socially, emotionally, and academically throughout the year and be the best they can be as individuals for a successful life.
