Hello! My name is Haley Yarbrough, and I am the Kindergarten teacher here at Hosanna Christian School! I am so excited to be on this new journey, and feel beyond blessed that God has called me to serve in such a foundational role for all of your children’s education.
A little about me:
I am a dog mom to a tri-pawed named Daisy. You and your littles will hear a lot about her this year. I am originally from Port Orchard, and recently moved back to continue my education and working. I have had two jobs for the past few years, but when I’m not working I enjoy spending time outside hiking, walking along the water, or going for a run. I do a lot of volunteer work in my local church as well, and like to branch out and explore what all the Pacific Northwest has to offer!
This year I hope to have a family-oriented feel in our classroom between the students and myself, but also with all of you. I value communication and believe it is what builds and maintains relationships. I want my students to feel safe, encouraged, and valued both in our classroom and at home. I hope to inspire all of your children this year and show them the joy and value of learning!
