Hello My Name Is...

Amy Haas

Hello, my name is Amy Haas.  I am so excited to begin another year teaching at Grove Valley.  I am SO excited!  I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Central Oklahoma.  I have been a teacher for 21 years and have taught Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade in Deer Creek and Oklahoma City.  I have been honored as a Great Expectations Model Classroom Teacher.  I have a passion for teaching and a desire for children to delight in coming to school.  I have always loved what I do to the point that it consumes me!  I love to come to school and I hope that my students do too! 

 I have been married to my husband for 23 years and we have three fantastic children.   Our oldest daughter, Sydney, is in college at UCO this year and loves playing in the Band.  She plans to be a Band Director with a minor in History so she can teach!  Our next daughter, Emily, is a student at the High School.  She is also in band and she is a Colorguard girl which means when you go to Friday night football she will be one of the ones with a giant flag.  She is a drummer of all things.  But her LOVE is ROBOTICS, and she will begin working this year at the Pre-Engineering Academy at Francis Tuttle.   Our son, Andrew, is a Third Grader this year!  That means I get everything you do, so I feel your parent pain, too!  My husband and I both play musical instruments, and I work in the children's department at our church, so you can that we are busy bees!  

I would have to say I have four LOVES in life.....God, my family, vacation (with those four crazies) and TEACHING!!!  Yes, for real.  I love it.  It's June right now and I have spent my day (most of them since school was out) dreaming about what I'm going to do with my new batch of Super Heroes coming my way.  I can't wait to meet all of them (hopefully, I'll have some of my old Pre-K buddies) and begin an exciting story together!  Up, Up and AWAY!
