Hello!! My name is Hailey Fontes and I am a Brilliant Beginnings teacher at Elona P. Cooley Early Childhood Development Center. It is my pleasure to be your child’s preschool teacher. I am looking forward to the upcoming school year I will share with your child.
I have been a part of the Higley Preschool since 2012 beginning as a paraprofessional while completing school. In 2015, I graduated from NAU with Bachelors of Science, Elementary and Special Education. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught preschool and first grade in the Higley District.
My husband and I are both born and raised in Arizona. We love to get outdoors and spend time with our family and friends. We have two daughters, one son, and two dogs. Every Friday my family and I wear red in support of “Remember Everyone Deployed”.
