Ms. Watson

Hi there! My name is Haley Watson and I can't wait to work with your child this year as their Kindergarten teacher. This will be my first year teaching at the Margaret C. Clifford School! I graduated from Rowan University with my bachelor's in Elementary Education, a certificate in English as a Second Language, and a minor in Spanish. I conducted my student teaching in a Kindergarten classroom this past year and fell in love with teaching Kindergarten. I truly love watching the students grow throughout the year, learn, and become the amazing humans they're meant to be. 

This year our classroom's character is SIMBA so I can't wait to welcome our little lions to the jungle!

The Lion King: Simba / Characters - TV Tropes

Some Fun Facts

-I LOVE to read! When I was in Kindergarten and first grade, my favorite book series was The Magic Tree House.

I hope learning a little about me will help your child feel comfortable in our classroom. Kindergarten is a fun, creative, and educational place. Our classroom is a community and I can't wait to meet the rest of our Kindergarten family for this year!
