About Me

Hello! My name is Haley Crosby and I am from Blaine, Minnesota. I grew up playing soccer and played throughout high school and college, and coach too. This is my second year teaching 4th grade and my second year here at Athlos. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with minors in Early Childhood and Communication, Sciences, and Disorders. I enjoy working with kids, playing and watching sports, being outdoors, and spending time with my friends and family. 
 
I am excited to begin the year with the 4th grade team and cannot wait to meet our fourth graders!
