My view of professionalism has transformed over the years, from being a nervous rookie concerned about dotting every “i” and crossing every “t” procedurally, to being a whole-person educator, willing to be patient and show grace, not just to my students, but to myself as well.

The plethora of activities and camp offerings created by Ms. Haney is exemplary and meets the standards of proposition five as well.
