Q+A with Hayley

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?

I am so lucky because I work with such a great staff! I love getting to see so many smiling faces when I get to work each day. Everyone in our building cares so much for each other and every child that enters the door.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I want to create a community where everyone is safe and happy. From my previous experience as the Customer Service Manager, I have been able to develop many great relationships with families, find schedules that work well for families, and go above and beyond to make sure everyone leaves the building with a smile on their face.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

Before moving to Texas, I grew up in Florida. I spent a lot of time around water, either at a pool or at the beach. One memory that stands out is when my girl scout troop worked toward a water safety patch. We learned how to swim with clothes on and save ourselves if we ever fell in any body of water on accident. The event lasted all day and left me exhausted!

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

I have so many great memories of children mastering a skill or overcoming a fear. One time, I had a student that did not like getting water in her ears and fought her backfloat every week. After weeks and weeks of practice, she finally did it on her own! I loved getting to celebrate with her and with her family!

Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.

Growing up my family moved around often. I went to ten schools before moving off to college! Each new move brought a lot of nerves about meeting new people, maintaining my grades and finding new activities. In middle school, I decided to join a drama summer camp at my new school, even though I had no desire to act. I ended up making such a great friend who sat with me at lunch on my first day of school. We still stay in touch today!
