Mrs. Susan Haight

 

 

 

My name is Susan Haight and I currently teach special education K-3 and Intervention K-1 this 2019-20 school year.  I have 23 years of experience working in education, with 18 of those years as a teacher.  I began my teaching career in Oregon and then moved to Arizona in 2002 for teaching opportunities in the Phoenix area, and later found my way to Amphi.  I have worked with both general and special education students in a variety of settings to include preschool and K-6 grade levels. 

DEFINING MOMENT

I did not initially set out with a career goal of being a teacher, but it was more that teaching found me.  I believe parents are a child's first educator and as I raised my own two children I realized through volunteering in their classrooms, outside extracurricular activities, managing a home based childcare business and later working as a teaching assistant, that I was already teaching.  With encouragement from others, I entered my formal educational journey.

EDUCATIONAL BELIEFS

I believe every child has their own unique personality and learning style.  I love to help children find the tools they will need to satisfy their curiosity and be successful.
