Ms. Haley Gillian
I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona and I am proud to have been educated in Mesa Public Schools. I attended Arizona State University, where I fulfilled my lifelong dream of becoming an educator! (Go Devils!) I received my Bachelors of Arts in English Literature as well as my certificate in Secondary Education. This is my first year teaching at Westwood High School and I could not be more excited to be a WarEagle!
My passion has always been in the written world and my teaching philosophy is rooted in the idea that as humans, our greatest asset is communication with one another. To quote John C. Maxwell, "Students do not care how much you know until they know how much you care." With this in mind, my goal as an educator is to provide a safe space for my students to learn and collaborate with their peers. My students will know that they are heard, cared for, and empowered to be the best versions of themselves.
I am ecstatic to see how we all learn and grow together this year!
