Grade 1

Linnea Guinan

Because of my love for learning, I decided at a young age that I wanted to be a teacher.  Now I enjoy fostering that passion for learning in my young students.  Something very special about teaching first grade is watching students grow and develop their personalities over the course of their years at the Haley. In addition to teaching, I enjoy reading and exploring the outdoors with my family.

I live in Hyde Park with my two children, and dog and cat. I enjoy going to the beach, spending time with my family, and reading books. My favorite things about teaching young learners is that they are so eager to learn and discover new things and the pride they feel when they have grasped a new concept. 

Ludovina Texiera

I have been teaching at the Haley for many years.  I live in Braintree and I enjoy spending time with my son Paulo.  I love traveling, reading, and spending time with family. As an educator it makes me proud to see my students flourish as they learn and explore new ideas in the classroom.  I look forward to meeting new students each year and helping  them grow as learners.
