She earned her Master’s Degree in Education from SFSU in 2012, and has an Education Specialist: mild/moderate teaching credential. Hailey currently teaches full time as a reading teacher at Raskob Day School, serving middle school students with a variety of learning styles and needs.

Being a family advocate for students with IEPs continues to be one of her favorite roles to play in this work. Hailey identifies as a professional development nerd, and enjoys attending workshops, and staying as fresh and relevant as possible in the field. She has received intensive training in the Slingerland method, learning research based strategies to teach students with language based learning challenges how to become strong and independent readers and writers. Hailey loves working one-to-one with her SOS kids, sharing strategies, celebrating their successes, tackling challenges, and building their confidence as scholars.
