Miss Haleigh is currently a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the School of Education. She plans to pursue a dual certification degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Miss Haleigh has wanted to be a teacher all her life, but really found her passion for education through her own teachers. She believes a good teacher can impact a child in extraordinary ways.


Miss Haleigh grew up in Hickory Hills, Illinois, a near southwest suburb of Chicago where she was the older sister to one brother. Her family is very close, active, and shares a love for animals. Miss Haleigh cherishes time spent with her family at their cabin in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. She says her family and education made her the strong, independent woman she is today with a compassion for those around her.


The close family setting and nature-centered learning experience drew Miss Haleigh to KELC and she is excited to support in a variety of classrooms to further her experience in the field. Her interests include spending time outdoors, singing, taking pictures, spending time with friends, and playing on the UW Women’s Club Lacrosse Team.
