About Ms. Stephanie...
It is an honor and privilege to serve the Haley School community as the Dean of Students. I was born and raised in Chandler, and am a proud product of the Chandler Unified School District.
My Education and Professional Background
After graduating from Arizona State University with a bachelor's in Elementary Education, I taught kindergarten and 4th grade in CUSD. After years of teaching I moved into the roll of instructional coach, which I did for four years. During that time I went back to school at Grand Canyon University and received a Master's Degree in Administration and Leadership. I am now in my fifth year as a Dean of Students in CUSD, and I am delighted to be given the opportunity to work alongside Mrs. McMillian and and the entire staff at Haley!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that students learn best when they are welcomed, comfortable, safe, and accepted for who they are. Every child is unique, and I am committed to fostering a love of learning while pulling from the strengths of each and every one of our students. Families are an essential part of the learning process. When we work together to achieve one common goal – the success of the student – we are powerful beyond measure!
