Welcome Haley Elementary families to what will be a spectacular year! My name is Patty Chinchilla and I am honored to be your Assistant Principal. I am excited to learn and grow together as a community. I am a proud mother of two awesome boys. I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy running, hiking, lounging poolside with a good book, yoga, cooking, trying new foods, and cheering on my boys in all they do.
My Education and Professional Background
I have been in education for 12 years. I was a classroom teacher for 9 years, a Title Coordinator and a Dean of Students for two years. I received a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, emphasizing in Technology from California State University, Fullerton, a master's degree in Leadership from Grand Canyon University, and hold a Bilingual Certification in Spanish.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe in maintaining a safe and nurturing learning environment that promotes a positive and strong relationship between school and home. Supporting student achievement through every means possible while developing the whole child is the foundation of my philosophy.
