“I am so excited to join the Lookout Mountain School community,” Haney said. “I am eager to meet and develop relationships with each child, their families, and our teachers as we embark on a new journey together. I look forward to working alongside the school community as we continue honoring the longstanding traditions and academic excellence of Lookout Mountain Elementary with every student.”
Haney previously served as an Academic Coach, EIP Teacher, and Classroom Teacher at Fairyland School (2010-16), EIP Teacher and fifth grade regular education Inclusion Teacher at McGarity Elementary School in Hiram, Ga. (2003-10), and as a second grade self-contained EIP Teacher at Kingston Elementary School in Kingston, Ga. (2002-03). She holds a B.S. Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master of Educational Leadership, both from Kennesaw State University.
“Being an educator has brought me so much joy,” Haney said. “Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to be a part of so many very special students’ lives. I truly believe that what starts in elementary school can change the world, and it is such an honor to be a part of something that powerful.”
Commissioner of Education for Town of Lookout Mountain expressed her enthusiasm with the new appointed principal, “We are thrilled to have Ms. Haney at the helm of Lookout Mountain School, “and added that “Karen Welborn, chairwoman of the Lookout Mountain School Board is equally as pleased.”
Our current beloved principal, Mrs. Ruth White, announced her retirement earlier this year after serving in education for over 30 years. Mrs. White will be celebrated for her valued service at the end of this school year.
