After a trip to BC, from Toronto, Ontario, in 2008, Hayley Bongard instantly fell in love with the salty air and mountainous coast. Later in 2012, upon the completion of her undergrad degree and Bachelor of Education at Western University, Hayley decided it was time to fuse her two interests, and spent a summer in Vancouver teaching at Saint George’s Summer Camp. Before officially making the move back west this year, Hayley’s teaching experience ranged from substitute teaching Kindergarten to Grade 6 classes, coaching a track and field team, and working as a kindergarten teaching assistant. Most recently, Hayley worked at Bialik Hebrew Day School as a teaching assistant in a Grade One class.
Outside of school you can find Hayley skiing in Whistler, cruising around local coffee shops, reading, or scouring the Internet looking to book her next vacation adventure.
