  •  My name is Haley Harrington and I am excited to be your student’s teacher this year. I graduated from The University of California, San Diego in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Neuroscience and Behavior). In 2015, I received my Master of Arts in Special Education specializing in Autism from San Diego State University. I have been with DMUSD since 2013. Last year, I was honored to be recognized by the North County Consortium for Special Education (NCCSE) for their Excellence in Special Education Award (elementary teacher). 


    My goal is to create an environment where your child feels safe, understood and successful. I want nothing more than for your child to love school!  I utilize a variety of techniques based off of the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). I also imbed naturalistic learning opportunities throughout the school day to ensure your child experiences success and maintains active, meaningful engagement.

    I am fortunate to have had opportunities to expand my knowledge and skills in the classroom. Below is a list of some of the trainings and workshops I have attended:
    -Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)
    -Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP)
    -Heart Saver First Aid CPR AED (American Heart Association)
    -Nonviolent Crisis Prevention Intervention (CPI)
    -Structured Teaching Model (TEACCH)
    -AAC Implementation
    -Mindfulness in the Preschool Classroom

    I have the best job in the world and feel privileged to work with your children. My students are my pride and joy and amaze me every day. I am confident that we are going to have a great year!
