Hazel Reyes has been part of the Highlands team since January 2014. Prior to joining the teaching staff, she was earning her Bachelor's Degree in English Education at San Francisco State University and working part-time as an Extended Care Teacher.
Hazel is a committed 3rd grade teacher, who loves to partner with parents and co-educators, to help students recognize their potential. She does her best to nurture a safe, healthy, and supportive learning environment for the students. She believes that the classroom should be a safe place where students can express their thoughts, make mistakes, and learn that their true purpose is to simply be loved by God. Some of her favorite activities with the children include messy Science experiments and story time!
Outside of the classroom, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, baking, and taking photographs outdoors with her husband and their dog.
