Haley Tucker- Co-Teacher
Haley Tucker has returned to Elevation as co-teacher in the Wonderers’ class! She previously taught with Elevation in the Wonderers’ class after years of working in the New Mexico public schools and in early childhood. Her visit to Reggio Emilia, Italy, informs her thoughtful teaching style.
Haley earned her Master's degree in Early Childhood education and is currently pursuing a law degree: she is intent on working toward policies that will help support women and children, and promote quality of life in local communities. Haley emphatically shares how "nothing brings me more joy than working with our youngest citizens, who have taught me how it is best to learn in a peaceful, engaging, and joyful place."
Kayley "Raye" LaBeau- Team Teacher
Kayley Raye (aka “Raye”) grew up in Albuquerque and has been shaped by her experience at Elevation School. While she is in her last semester in high school, she already has a wealth of experience working with children here. “I became interested in working with kids because of Elevation,” Raye says. “It started as a summer job and turned into what I wanted to do as a career.”
Raye’s hobbies include spending time with her dogs, friends, and family. She loves writing, drawing, listening to music, and shares her mom’s passion for everything Disney.
We admire Raye’s mature sensibility when she first started and we continue to see how the children learn from her caring spirit and light up when they see her. We are thrilled to learn that Raye plans to go into the field of Early Childhood Education and know that she will make a difference in many children’s lives!
