Teachers - Preschool
The majority of Lesley’s upbringing was spent locally on an acreage near Slave Lake. Her love for animals, the boreal forest, and being active outdoors thrived! Lesley’s post secondary journey resulted in her pursuing her true professional passion for early childhood education. She has relevant work experience within the province, across Canada, and even abroad! Finally back to where she calls home, Lesley is excited to combine both her personal and professional skills via developmentally appropriate practices. Her pedagogical philosophy is derived from her studies and modern-day research in that young children learn through play. In early childhood, "the process of learning involves making connections and relationships between feelings, ideas, words, and actions" (LeeKeenan & Nimmo). Miss Haney is excited for the year with our families of St.Mary of the Lake Catholic School!
