Ms. Haley received her Bachelor’s Degree from Georgia State University before she embarked on what she thought would be a year-long journey to teach English in South Korea. Little did she know that this one-year contract would evolve into a twelve year immersive experience, where she taught high school, middle school and elementary students. What began as a desire to explore the world and embrace a new culture quickly transformed into a lifelong devotion to education and empowerment. Having returned to the United States in the spring of 2022 to be closer to family, Ms Haley joined YHALE in 2023 to continue her mission to make a positive impact on the lives of students. When she’s not inspiring students, Ms. Haley finds joy in her other passions. She loves cooking, traveling and spending time with her family.
