Mrs. Miki Wallingsford
Congratulations to our Haughton High School February Teacher of the Month Miki Wallingsford. Mrs. Wallingsford is in her ninth year of teaching mathematics at Haughton High. She is also an alumna of HHS, having graduated in 2000, when she was known as Miki Taylor. She has an education degree in mathematics and a master’s degree in educational technology. Mrs. Wallingsford and her husband are the proud parents of a five-year-old son; she also has a 20-year-old stepdaughter. Below is more information about Mrs. Wallingsford that you may not know:
My favorite place to hang out with my family is on the lake fishing.
When I have free time I watch T.V.
My advice to our students is do your best.
Describe yourself in 3 words: blunt, caring, and country.
What I like most about teaching at Haughton -- my co-workers.
Nothing makes me laugh like my goofy little boy!
The best part of my job is my students.
Growing up I got in trouble by speaking before I thought about I was about to say.
My favorite quote is, “Life is hard. It is harder if you’re stupid!” – John Wayne
Congratulations again to Mrs. Wallingsford!
(The HHS Teacher of the Month award is part of the school's Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports [P.B.I.S.] program. Each teacher selected receives a certificate and $25 in gift cards, sponsored by the HHS Library).
Mrs. Alice Hunt, HHS Teacher of the Year 2014-15
