Haley Gronbeck

Full Bio

Haley Gronbeck received her AA degree from NSCC in 2006 and then went on to complete her B.A from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. While a student at NSCC, Haley participated in a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) qualitative research project called Student Voices. The project looked at four different components in learning in school: individual learning, classroom environment, relationship with the instructor, and overall campus environment. The questionnaire and personal student interviews asked students questions about what they needed in these four different categories to succeed. This research was presented at both national and international SoTL conferences.

Haley is experienced in alternative learning environment because she completed her undergraduate degree at a college that stresses seminar-style and interdisciplinary learning.

Haley was a teaching assistant for two quarters with Jane Lister Reis and Carol Hamilton in different coordinated studies courses. She currently tutors in the Tutoring Loft at the college and is a director of an afternoon cooperative childcare center. Her long-term educational goals include a master's in teaching and ultimately a Ph.D.
