Welcome to my Web page and welcome to the 2021-22 school year!
My name is Mrs. Haney and I teach special education in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. I am beginning my 31st year in education. I have taught Kindergarten through 12th grade and also college classes. The middle school environment has been home to me for the last eight years, and it really is my niche. I love this age!
A bit about me.....
I obtained a Bachelors Degree in Social Work, a Masters Degree in Adult and Higher Education and a Masters degree and Rank I in Special Education P-12 in both Moderate and Severe Disabilities and Learning and Behavior Disorders. I am a Master Teacher through the Kentucky Education Development Center, meaning that my classroom and my teaching strategies are observed by, and I serve as a mentor to, new special education teachers in our region. I am actively involved with the KY Commission for Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Hands and Voices, American Society for Deaf Children, a regional Autism Cadre, a regional Master Teacher cadre, and the Down Syndrome Society. I am a parent coach through a project at University of Kentucky, advocating and assisting parents with children with hearing loss. Additionally, American Sign Language is utilized in my classroom on a daily basis as a supplemental communication for all.
I am married to Greg Haney. I have three children, Beth (husband Jared), Gabe (wife Shelby), and Chloe (Nursing major at MSU). We are also grandparents to Jackson, Macy, and Elijah! I enjoy family time, quilting, and being with my friends.
I have a very open door policy and believe that children will best succeed if those doors of communication remain open. I may be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 606-784-8911. I will return all emails or calls once the school day is over.
We maintain a full schedule in our classroom teaching toward IEP goals, teaching functional daily living skills, and instructing the core curriculum. It's a joy to spend my career watching my students meet their goals!
