About Me

Hello! My name is Mrs. Haines and I am going to be your First Grade teacher this year! This year is going to be my 6th year teaching and I can happily say that all of those years have been in First Grade, at Prairie School! I loving teaching and watching little minds shape and mold into wonderful little readers, writers, mathematicians, and so much more! I take pride in what I do because I have a very important job. I am one of  the architects of our future generation of America. My favorite thing in the world is being able to watch that light turn on when a student learns a new concept! Which is the reason why I love what I do each day!

I graduated with a Bachelors Degree at Simpson University in 2012 and my Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis on Curriculum and Instruction in 2015. I then decided to continue my education and received my Preliminary Administrative Credential in 2016. 

I am married to my best friend of 12 years and we have a two phenomenal boys ages 8 and 2 years old. They are the center of my world and the loves of my life!

In a nutshell, I have always loved kids, and teaching has been my dream career since I was 5 years old! I like to say I have been teaching since then, as I would teach my stuffed animals as well as my nieces and nephews in my  "classroom" in my childhood home. I am easy to talk to and love parent volunteers! Thank you in advance for making this a great year!

            I strive to create a learning environment that is fun, engaging, exciting, and positive. I want kids to learn without even knowing that they are learning. I have high expectations for all of the students in my class, however, I like to have fun too! My goal is to always provide a captivating and safe learning environment and get them ready for Second Grade!
