Abbey Haughey

Hello! My name is Abbey Haughey and I am the art teacher at Boevers Elementary.

I have been teaching since 2013, and with Union since 2014. This is my third year at Boevers, and I have loved every second of it! I graduated from Northeastern State University with a degree in Art Education. Directly after graduating I received a Fulbright scholarship to teach English in Taiwan for one year.

Why art? I believe in the power of art. 33% of kids are visual learners, so many students learn by using their senses, and art is ideal in this process. Art creates a space for students to express themselves, builds self-esteem, and develops hand and eye coordination. With art, it stimulates perception, teaches them to think openly, teaches students there is more than one solution for a problem, and is integrated with other subjects. I’m ready for an amazing school year with amazing Boevers artists!
