Ms. Haines has replaced Mr. Cho as our attendance secretary, she graduated from the University of Tennessee just this year. She says that her biggest accomplishment is moving herself across the country to our area without knowing anyone. She has come to love Shoreline and says it is, “a really energetic, community centered place.” While growing up in Long Island, New York, as a child she wanted to be a librarian or teacher due to her love for books. Ms. Haines is a caring person who would “…want to invent something to help end people’s lack of availability to resources like food, water, and medicine,” and has a pet peeve for apathy. Her piece of advice for students is to, “just go be yourself and find what you’re passionate about. You don’t have to have it all figured out, ever. Just let yourself be drawn to what interests you.” We look forward to the rest of the year with Ms. Haines.
